Buffalo Mayor Randy Dyess gave his first State of the City Address on Wednesday, saying the city has issues to face, but it is in good shape. Aaron Palmer has more.
Dyess said residents are facing tough times, but have faced them before, and he expects things to improve and for the city and its citizens to gain new strength.
Dyess went on to say he and all citizens of Buffalo should be happy for the low crime rate, and for improvements such as the water treatment plant and the wastewater treatment plant. He urged city government to continue upgrading the infrastructure in the city, which is vital for growth to occur.
He also pledged that he would take an active stance for economic development to help lure new business to Buffalo, and to make the city more business-friendly.
And, Dyess said, cooperation between the city, county and the state, as well as other entities is beneficial to everyone for positive growth and said he would work more closely with those entities to get it done.
In the end, Dyess had this to say on the state of the city.
