Razing of incinerator building urged

Cheektowaga's supervisor wants to demolish a familiar sight along Union Road -- the town's incinerator building.

Calling it an eyesore, James J. Jankowiak said the incinerator on the Town Hall campus near Broadway has outlived its usefulness.

The masonry and concrete block building was built in the 1940s and was used to burn municipal garbage, Town Engineer William Pugh said. Cheektowaga stopped that practice more than 30 years ago, he said.

Today, the building houses the buildings and grounds staff, electrician and plumber and is used as a storage area.

After the building is demolished, Jankowiak would like to build a storage facility for vehicles and other equipment in its place.

Also being examined is the South Branch Library at 2660 William St., which closed in 2005. The supervisor said the town would like to sell the building.
