Pistol permit office hours changing – The Niagara County Pistol Permit Office will roll out new hours next month in an attempt to speed up approvals, after County Clerk Wayne F. Jagow noted a spike in pistol permit applications. Effective the first week in June, the office will now be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and closed to the general public on Wednesdays so staff can process paperwork. Wednesday is the slowest traffic day of the week for the office, Jagow said.
