Erie County Legislators Joe Lorigo, Frank Todaro, Chris Greene, and John Mills are calling on County Executive Poloncarz, Empire State Development, and the Bills organization to publicly release the study that was conducted regarding a potential new stadium.
The legislators clocked in a resolution Friday morning noting PSE has publicly acknowledged presenting the study to both New York State and Erie County officials. Once the plan is finalized, it will come before the Erie County Legislature for approval. Legislators have not yet been part of any discussion and have not received any communication regarding the study.
Legislator Lorigo said, “This entire process has been conducted behind closed doors. As a legislative body, we will have to approve the final proposal. I believe we deserve a seat at the table during these negotiations and taxpayers deserve to know where the organization stands. I hope my colleagues will support this request for transparency and I will move to vote on this resolution at our next legislative session.”
