The City Council voted Monday to waive the sales tax on clothing and footwear for a week in January.
Following the lead of Cattaraugus County legislators and the State Legislature, the Council approved the tax amnesty in the city for Jan. 17-23.
During a brief final session of the year the Council also adopted a resolution issuing a statement of negative declaration for a proposed new city zoning law. The Council is expected to hold a public hearing and act on adopting the new law in January.
It is the fist time in over 30 years the law has been updated.
