The contamination of Hoyt Lake usually happens when there is overflow of Squajaquada Creek where it goes underground near the east end of the lake. The larger remedy is cleaning up the creek, but in the short run an inexpensive retaining wall along the Hoyt Lake walkway at the creek 'tunnel' might give another foot of insurance against creek overflow into the lake during heavy rains. Keeping the screen covering the creek tunnel entrance free of the too-common ugly trash & debris would also assist in keeping the creek flowing around, rather than into, the Lake.

Watch out Life Coach - I saw a bunch of tattooed people over by that lake the other day. I don't want you to get scared or anything. I know how frightened you are by people with tattoos.

Funny how they remove comments. Sam Hoyt is a grandstanding silver spooner who has done nothing for Buffalo. He only has his lifetime of politcs be cause he rides the coattails of his father. He has done nothing on his own or for this city. Spare us. He suddenly is all over the news lately, camera sniffing seems to be his forte.

Storm water added to sewage lines should be outlawed. Many cities have corrected the past mistakes of early infrastructure design by passing local laws forcing property owners to redirect rain water.
Swimming bans, foul waterways (weed choked creeks and rivers) and smelly city lakes lower the appeal for residents and those that might consider expanding a business here.

That moron was Sam Hoyt. Changing the name of the lake was the first thing he did when he was appointed to fill his fathers position

If they are going to change it back, the historic name is "Mirror Lake." Since the only you can see in it now is slime, the new name is actually appropriate.

First of all, I don't think your screen name is funny. I was at the Pan American Exposition in 1903 and I saw President McKinley get shot.

I think they should name the Lake "Andrew T. Ashly Lake because that was the name of the 4 year old boy whose body was found floating in there in the mid 60's after he was abducted from the corner of Parkside and Jewett and murdered.

A young woman with mental problems was sent to the nuthouse for doing it. For years, there has been a rumor that Thom Jolls' sister was that woman. I san't find anything on the internet about it.

Does anyone have a sunscription to the Buffalo news Archives who could look it up?

His forte was and still is INTERN SNIFFING! That means ADULTERY. It may also be statutory rape depending on the age of the interns. He just never thought he would be caught. he is a sinner. When i am elected Senator I will punch the interns instead of humping them.
