Quality of Life Complaints Rise in City

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown says there has been an increase in quality of life complaints in the City. But he is promising some relief.

Mayor Brown note that while violent crimes rates in other urban areas of the US are increasing, Buffalo is actually experiencing a dramatic decrease.

The rate of those crimes dropped 24% so far this year. But Brown says now residents are complaining of more quality of life crimes.

Brown says one of the biggest complaints from city residents is about loud noises.
