Flash Flooding Damage Assessed in Cattaraugus County

They’re still assessing the weekend flood damage in Cattaraugus County
The flooding began around 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon.
In addition to the all the flooded basements, all events at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds on Saturday were canceled including the Demolition Derby and fireworks. The flash flooding caused the county to close some roads for a time, particularly Route 353.
Any more talk about regulations for Olean food trucks have been postponed.
There hasn’t been any progress in the eight months since Rafi’s Food Cart cart fire and damaged a neighboring home. It left the homeowner wondering why the food cart was allowed to operate so close to his home.
Right now, city law allows food trucks to operate in residential areas and aren’t required to have regular fire inspections. City officials said last December they would look into regulations for food trucks, but the issue has been stalled.
