(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The center employs 77 people currently, IDA Executive Director David R. Kinyon said currently 20 percent of which live in Lockport. About 40 percent live in Niagara County.

But, Yahoo isn’t exempt from the town’s special district taxes, as the company paid $185,000 last year for water, sewer and fire, according to Paul Bonaro, Lockport data center operations manager.

Yahoo just needs site plan approval from the town Planning Board, which is on the May 8 and 15 meeting agenda. Kinyon said construction would start shortly after that.
