Local News Headlines

County Legislature has two, main items on agenda for Wednesday night meeting...

Two major items are on the agenda for tonight's Chautauqua County Legislature meeting in Mayville.  One is a budget change.  Cassadaga-area Legislator John Runkle says that item's a resolution to increase the county's fund balance by $2.6-million.  Runkle says they'll be looking to get more IGT monies -- a 2-for-1 deal -- to yield $5.2-million.  The resolution comes as the sale of the County Home in Dunkirk is expected to be completed by the end of this year.  The other big item is a $300,000 grant for projects on Goose Creek in order to reduce the amount of sediment that flows into Chautauqua Lake.  Legislator Keith Ahlstrom says the grant for the project would help address the root problems of the lake.  Ahlstrom says... in the past... they've basically been dealing with the symptoms... but, this will hopefully be a long-term fix.  The Dunkirk Democrat says the project will "straighten out" the meandering creek... and, reduce "thousands of tons of sediment" that flows into Chautauqua Lake.

First Blue-Green Algae blooms spotted in county on Chautauqua Lake...

Our warmer temperatures have led to the first Blue-Green algae blooms to be spotted on the lakes in Chautauqua County.  The county's Health and Human Services Department is urging all users of the lake to be cautious... especially when algae is present.  The department's Deputy Director of Enviromental Health... Mark Stow... says Blue-Green Algae is a type of cyanobacteria that can form thick "mats" on the water surface... resembling paint.  Stow says there have been two blooms spotted in Chautauqua Lake so far this Summer.  One is at The Casino dock area, but, the nearby beach has not been affected.  The other is near Long Point State Park.  However... Stow again says the beach area has not been affected.  He says Blue-green Algae blooms can be a problem because they can release a toxin... and, at high levels... it's harmful to human and animal health if ingested.  Stow says the biggest concern is for pets that walk along the shoreline... because the algae clings to their fur... and, they may ingest some of the algae -- which could kill them.  Stow says humans also need to avoid injesting the toxin... but, adds the bigger problem is skin irritation from being around it.  The blooms have been also been a problem on Lake Erie.
