A Flood Watch in effect from the National Weather Service, starting tonight and continuing through Tuesday.
The Watch covers most of Western New York, including Genesee Wyoming and Orleans counties.
One to two inches of rain is expected. 70-80% chance of rain today and tonight.
A pair of children left in a car, unattended, while the driver walks into Wal-Mart.
The kids are safe today. The driver, 24-year-old Isaac Emmanuel Simmons, is charged with two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Genesee County Sheriff’s Deputies say Simmons left the vehicle running when he left the children. He also allegedly did not have a car seat for the 2-year-old, and he does not have a valid driver’s license.
Simmons is due in Town of Batavia court at a later date.
An Erie County man is facing a slew of charges following a police chase and accident on Factory Road in the Town of Sheldon. 26-year-old Justin Savage of Holland, New York, was allegedly riding drunk with a passenger on private property when deputies caught up with him.
Savage tried to escape – but flipped his three-wheeler. Neither he nor the passenger were hurt.
Savage was allegedly found with marijuana on his person. His BAC was at least .08%. He was also riding without a helmet.
He’s locked up on $2,500 dollars bail.
On the Monday morning Bad Boys and Girls report:
30-year-old Ryan James Sundown of Basom is charged with Criminal Obstruction of Breathing. Sundown is alleged to have choked a female during a domestic dispute on Saturday night. He’ll be back in court May 5th.
And 46-year-old Virginia Miller of Colony Run in Attica is accused of Assault and Menacing. Genesee County Sheriff’s Deputies report that she threatened another person with a kitchen knife – then instead used her teeth. She bit the victim and caused injury.
Miller is due to appear at a later date.
From WBTA’s Eye on Government:
The Batavia City Council will meet in conference session tonight. No formal votes are taken at a conference session.
Council plans to discuss budget amendments to pay for the North Street sewer repairs. The project was scheduled to be completed next year, but had to be moved up to this summer due to raw sewage seeping into homes.
Council will also take a first look at the proposed contract for the city’s new Economic Development Coordinator position. The position is set to be hired sometime before August 1st. The coordinator’s $90,000 dollar salary includes a $10,000 contribution from the city.
Council meets at 7:00pm in the Council Board Room at Batavia City Centre. The public is welcome to attend.
