TOWN OF TONAWANDA, NY - The Erie County Legislature voted Friday afternoon to block the re-opening of the Amigone Funeral Home crematory on Sheridan Drive after complaints from neighbors about smoke, soot and smells.

The operators shut it down voluntarily two years ago and had said that they planned to install a state-of-the-art filtration system. They may file a lawsuit against the county over the decision.
