21 persons were arrested last night at the Brooks and Dunn Concert at Darien Lake. None were from Genesee County. The closest, 23 year old Gregory Smith of Austin Street in Alden was arrested for trespass after returning to concert after being ejected and told not to return. 6 persons were taken to court to answer to the charges, 9 were given appearance tickets, and there were 6 arrests for underage drinking. The Coming the farthest to get arrested award goes to a Canadian from Orillia Ontario, north of Toronto. That person was arrested for Petit Larceny after allegedly stealing Dippin’ Dots at the Amusement Park. For the record Dippin’ Dots are ice cream frozen into small balls…therefore dots.
The City of Batavia will be getting four hundred thousand dollars from New York State in the form of a Community Block Grant. With the money the City of Batavia will be able to implement a citywide housing rehabilitation program for owner-occupants of single-family dwellings who meet very low to moderate-income level requirements and whose properties are in need of rehabilitation. The City received over 60 applications during the application process for the grant and the funding will enable the City to provide grants and loans depending on household income levels up to 24,500 dollars per household. Once the paper work is complete the city will notify all applicants of the process to move forward and will issue details.
