When will a real solution happen for this?
What is the process for citizens to propose community development ideas?
This is a complaint of a FAKE city of buffalo school zone with the cameras and beacons, D'youville College is NOT a city of buffalo public school, just like Buffalo state college is NOT a city of buffalo Public school, but D'youville COLLEGE has city of buffalo school cameras and beacons, and Buff State does not, yet the school # 3 at porter & Niagara does not , which is a public school. So why does a college have these cameras and beacons since it is NOT a Buffalo Public school, attended by ADULTS, NO children?
Peace officer? More like piece of s**t officer. N**i earning the hate. No wonder people hate these motherfreckles with badges .
Hi, when is the next Common Council meeting and will it be live?
Wish they would make a ATV park for people to take their quads and dirtbikes and 3 wheelers and that would get alot of them off the streets that are riding in traffic. It would be a easy profit.

Regarding Mayor Byron Brown's WONDERFUL School Zone Speed Cameras Policy (insert sarcasm here).......Can somebody please tell me WHY there are no beacons on the northbound side of Colvin Avenue at Nichols School? (But there is one going south bound) They are clearly issuing tickets for those that are going more than 25 mph on the northbound side since I just received a notice in the mail yesterday for going 27 mph on Wednesday, November 4 at 2:54 pm. Something needs to be addressed as far as the lack of beacons. :(

HOW ABOUT SOMETHING GETS DONE ABOUT THIS!!! ONTARIO AND TONAWANDA ST IN RIVERSIDE
So now that Buffalo has demonstrated that we can arbitrarily name a street after any hate group we want or frankly anything we want...what is Buffalo going to do when people go out and droves with paint and start renaming all of your signs?
