LUSJ reporting the annual bike auction will be this Saturday at 9:30am. Over 100 bikes are available.
Both Niethe and Schaffert said all money collected from the auction goes to the city’s general fund.
I'm always suspicious of any revenues such as these which disappear into the general fund. I'd love to see this money going toward making Lockport more enjoyable for bicyclists. Addtional bike lane striping, bike lock-up locations DT (similar to the Buffalo ones shown above), etc are all needed. Without dedicated funding they are often hard to come by and often need begging for grants. Why not create a dedicated (and relevant) funding source?
