I guarantee it.”On Friday, officials in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany County announced they are seeking to reopen as a sub-region, separate from the Buffalo Metro area.Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel says Chautauqua County meets all seven of the state’s reopening requirement metrics, when judged independently.last_img read more
