City Hallways Feature - The week that just was (July 24-29)

Lots of the week's action was in Philadelphia, but plenty was going on back in Buffalo, too: 

Big week for Democrats: Mayor Byron Brown - who is chairman of the state Democratic committee - left for Philadelphia Sunday,  spending most of week at the Democratic National Convention.  Council President Darius Pridgen  was there much of week, too.

Insects attacking trees:  As many as 75 trees in Shoshone Park, attacked by emerald ash borers, may have to be taken down, residents are told at Monday evening meeting.

Don't chance it:  City is raising parking fines.

Nyree's legacy: More sidewalks getting replaced in East Side neighborhoods near where 7-month-old Nyree Greene died after being struck by a car. Nyree's mother, who was also struck while pushing Nyree in a stroller, said she was forced to walk in the street because sidewalks on  Moselle Street were in such bad shape.
