With women and minorities making up another third of the employees.

The mayor also seeks the assurance of the Seneca that they would not buy property beyond their nine acre casino site and include it in their sovereign property in Buffalo

Seneca had issued a deadline of 11 o’clock in the morning for the town to accept their terms or they would act on their own.

The mayor had announced that the town will not be subjected to deadlines.
