Common Council approves Olmsted deal

By WBFO News

Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo Common Council Tuesday unanimously approved a 5-year contract with the non-profit group that maintains the city's historic parks system.

Lawmakers approved a plan to pay the Olmsted Parks Conservancy $1 millions a year, while matching 50-percent of the group's fundraising efforts up to $200,000.

The Conservancy has managed Buffalo's Olmsted parks since 2004.
