Tonawanda supervisor pressured to lift parking ban ... by his daughter

The Village of Lancaster is the latest community to relax its overnight winter parking restrictions due to unseasonably warm temperatures and no snowfall forecast.

Mayor William C. Schroeder announced Wednesday morning the village's parking ban is lifted until March 6.

Cheektowaga officials on Tuesday announced the town's ban is suspended until March 1 when it will be re-evaluated based on weather forecasts.

And if Mary Emminger had her way, the Town of Tonawanda would be next. She used Cheektowaga's decision to prod her dad, Supervisor Joseph H. Emminger, on Twitter.

The supervisor acknowledged his daughter was "putting pressure on her old man to do so," but said the Town Board wouldn't consider it until its meeting Monday night.

It was Tonawanda several years ago that "started the trend" of lifting the ban early, Emminger noted.
