City of Lackawanna Business Registration Application               Application

The Lackawanna Department of Public Safety and the Department of Animal Control have issued the following for Lackawanna residents.

Residents are urged to use extreme caution when dealing with wildlife in the area.  The Erie County Health Department and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation have raised concerns over the recent heightened rabies exposure this summer.

Due to the heightened rabies exposure reported, people are being urged not to touch wild animals and to have their domesticated pets vaccinated to prevent the spread of rabies.  Raccoons, foxes, skunks and bats are more vulnerable to rabies than other animals.

Recently, an injured bat was discovered in a residential area of Lackawanna.  Lackawanna Animal Control Officer, Fred Grasso, captured the bat and had it tested for the rabies virus through the Erie County Health Department.  Testing conducted on the bat resulted in a positive indication of the rabies virus infection.

To report injured or abandoned wildlife, call the SPCA Serving Erie County at 875-7360 during business hours, or 556-0076 for after-hours emergencies, or the Erie County Health Department at 961-6800.

Advisory Committee for Honorary Street Naming

Several citizens have approached the council regarding having streets renamed in honor of their loved ones. The City Council is desirous in establishing a committee for a potential Honorary Street naming. This committee will assist the council with requests to have a street renamed in honor of a specific citizen who contributed greatly to the city of Lackawanna. Please understand, this is only an Honorary name change; the existing street name will stay the same. Any persons showing an interest in becoming a member of this committee should send their request by mail to the Lackawanna City Council.

The Lackawanna Police Department has been responding to a sizable increase in police calls, with regard to thefts of property from unlocked vehicles throughout the city. Property reported missing ranged from loose change and currency, purses, GPS units, cell phones and laptop computers left unattended in unlocked vehicles.

Motorists are encouraged to remove their valuable items from their unattended vehicle, or to lock their unattended vehicles, at all times, to prevent the theft of personal property. The extra seconds it takes to lock your unattended vehicle is worth the time to prevent the theft of your personal property.

City of Lackawanna Director of Public Safety, James T Kuna, would like to thank the citizens of Lackawanna for adhering to the alternate parking restrictions throughout the past several months. With the winter season, fast approaching, it is strongly requested that adherence to the alternative parking restrictions remain

in effect. As winter snow accumulations are (sadly) forthcoming,____ adherence to alternate parking restrictions will assist in accessibility to emergency vehicles and the timely plowing of our city streets.

Violations of the alternate parking restrictions will continue to be strictly enforced during the winter months, and violators may be subject to having vehicles towed at their expense, in addition to receiving parking citations. Motorists are advised to pay attention to posted alternate parking signs, as some city streets are designated alternate parking between specified dates, while most streets are designated alternate parking throughout the year.

Let’s keep our city streets safe and clear of snow accumulation during the upcoming winter season. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

James T. Kuna

Director of Public Safety
