Flags to be a half-staff in memory of Keane
Flags will fly at half-staff today on Buffalo's city buildings and property in memory of former Assemblyman Richard J. Keane Jr., who died Tuesday, Mayor Byron W. Brown said Thursday.
"For over 30 years, he served the citizens of Buffalo, notably the residents of South Buffalo, with great distinction, passion, integrity and honesty," Brown said.
Pretax income can be used to purchase Metro passes
City employees now can use their pretax income to buy Metro transit passes for Metro buses and rail, Mayor Byron W. Brown announced.
Under the Metro Advantage Plan, city employees get a 30 percent discount on passes, while the city saves about 8 percent in taxes on the income that is used for the plan, Brown says.
