Captain the city of Dunkirk has never gotten ahead. The sewage plant was not upgraded until an order on consent was issues ditto for the water plant. The former mayor and council spent money trying to make a city that has nothing look pretty. We go to the cemetery to clean the grave and place flowers. This is what happened to the city. Make it look good but get nothing in return. Sorry for the analogy but facts are facts. When the money dries up and it will what then? Poor management over the years out of control spending got us where we are today. Who is going to invest money in a city that continues to ignore the wants and needs of the people. We are becoming more like Washington every day.

My question is was the deal the city made for Stephans Marine a legal deal? By this I mean was the money that was used to buy it authorized for that particular type purchase or was the money taken from a fund that was not allowed to be spent on this type of a deal? The city should be looking into this and inform the taxpayer if the money was misappropriated? This is the question that should and must be answered. I do not see any elected officials asking these questions. Why? If it was a legal buy with the correct funds fine. If not then an investigation should be started to see who authorized this transfer of funds and the proper steps be taken to prosecute especially if these were Federal funds. The taxpayer of Dunkirk is tired of being bamboozled by elected officials who think they are above the law.

Maybe Kiyak will give us another "prepared statement" instead of speaking her views openly and ad lib

Thank you Mr. Gonzalez for having the courage to say no. Throwing more money at a stupid decision does not make the original decision correct. It will tend to make the DLDC even more willing to risk current and future taxpayer’s money.

Hey I've got property in Dunkirk to sell and I'd be happy to allow the city to buy it for 300% or more over it's real value!

Maybe Dunkirk should form a LDC with the expertise to handle things like this!

What? Oh...
