BNW Letter to North Tonawanda on Fortistar and Local Law

Beginning of letter: 

“Please accept this letter regarding the Fortistar North Tonawanda (FNT)/Digihost Facility at 1070 Erie Avenue on behalf of our organization and our tens of thousands of constituents in Western New York. As a follow-up to Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper’s previous letter to the Council, there are several updates worth sharing and we urge the Common Council to adopt the 2021 Local Law Number 4 “A Local Law Establishing a Three-Month MORATORIUM ON Bitcoin Mining Facilities & Facilities that Authenticate Blockchain” in order to allow for the details of the facility to be understood, environmental concerns assessed, and all required.”
