 City Council establishes “Honorary” Street Re-Naming guidelines.

The City Council, at the June 6 regular meeting, approved the creation of a new public board – “Street Naming Committee.” This five person committee consists of four residents, one from each ward as recommended by their respective Council Member, and the sitting Council President, who acts as Chairperson. This committee is responsible for reviewing all applications for establishing “Honorary” street names for current or past residents who are distinguished in one form or another. After reviewing the applications, the committee will then submit a non-binding decision to the City Council for their consideration. Members of the committee were approved at that same meeting.

Applications for the “Honorary” re-naming must include the following criteria:

  • Evidence of support by one or more geographically relevant civic groups or associations.
  • Evidence of support by local businesses, schools or churches on the affected street.
  • A statement as to why the candidate is historically or culturally significant.
  • A map showing the exact geographic limits of the re-naming request.
  • A petition signed by local residents supporting the request.

Applications are available in the City Clerk’s Office, City Hall, Room #215. All applications must be filed with a non-refundable processing fee of $100.00, with an additional $100.00 due if the request is approved by the City Council. These fees cover processing, materials and man-power if approved.

The period for submitting applications is July 1 through August 31. You may contact the City Clerk’s office at 827-6470 with questions.

The Lackawanna Department of Public Safety and the Department of Animal Control have issued the following for Lackawanna residents.

Residents are urged to use extreme caution when dealing with wildlife in the area.  The Erie County Health Department and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation have raised concerns over the recent heightened rabies exposure this summer.

Due to the heightened rabies exposure reported, people are being urged not to touch wild animals and to have their domesticated pets vaccinated to prevent the spread of rabies.  Raccoons, foxes, skunks and bats are more vulnerable to rabies than other animals.

Recently, an injured bat was discovered in a residential area of Lackawanna.  Lackawanna Animal Control Officer, Fred Grasso, captured the bat and had it tested for the rabies virus through the Erie County Health Department.  Testing conducted on the bat resulted in a positive indication of the rabies virus infection.

To report injured or abandoned wildlife, call the SPCA Serving Erie County at 875-7360 during business hours, or 556-0076 for after-hours emergencies, or the Erie County Health Department at 961-6800.
