West Seneca considers sharing an assessor
"By Mary Pasciak Bufnews(BN):
BN: "That setup would save West Seneca as much as $140,000 a year, West Seneca Supervisor Wallace."-
Where, where is the $140,000 a year coming from? Shell game using tax dollars! This is no “Consolidation of...
Ruling upholds West Seneca downsizing timeline.
As of Jan. 1 the West Seneca Town Board will have only three members - two councilmen and the town supervisor -State Supreme Court Justice Donna M. Siwek ruled this afternoon.
In a dispute that could be considered by the state's higher courts...
You know the more I read certain peoples posts -
it becomes more evident - "Politics"
I first must say, many people appreciate "Activists" - many people applaud those who "Get Involved" - welcome honest open debate.
First let me say this about myself, I am now a registered Republican. I...
Who is this lady accountable to - who is her Boss - who can hire or fire in this case - legally - I bet Mr.DT Warren knows!
Can the Town Board say no more over time?
Is this lady(and others in similar positions) covered by a Union contract or non union?
Do these high number salary...
In another Towns thread this was posted:
"West Seneca Board of Education just accepted over 100 staff retirements at $35,000 each to leave"
Is that actually $3.5 Million tax dollars ?
Why are tax payers funding this ?
When were such bonuses approved?
How does this factually helping...
The Town is investigating the rec department while the building department is full of problems, town trucks are all over doing nothing! These people need to get their priorities straight!
:mad: Well, the self righteous, self important idiots always fall. He is a hypocrite like Sptizer and NY Comptroller Hevesi. How many days was he in office? 110 day until he got exposed! The truth must come out. Ask the neighbors! – Ask them about Guns! This man is lying and the police are covering...
These are the minutes that are posted on the Town's web-site for the January Planning Board meeting. Not only did the newly appointed secretary to the Planning Board take two months to get them on-line, the minutes are filled with typographical errors, grammatical errors, etc. Mr. Hanley and...
Seems to me that each thread under West Seneca Politics....no matter what the subject..........(most of the time ) leads to the Americorp leader.
1) Who supervises him?
2) What is the count on employees who have been fired for no good reason?
(and he brags about it)
3) How many good...
Wouldn't that be interesting?
Bove & Graber,
Last nights' board meeting was a disgrace. ALL of you should grow up.
One hard question came to mind for me, as the two of you were pointing fingers. Seeing you were the ONLY two on the board prior to Jan 08. -
How did you two let the health insurance lapse from August -...
The town board should let the citizens of West Seneca speak PRIOR to the board voting on agenda items, not AFTER.
Shame on the board for not allowing the taxpayers to vote on reducing their seats or not. Are you all afraid of what the voters might say? If not, why not approve the referendem?...
According to this Monday's agenda...
Councilwoman Bove re Support for director of Burchfield Nature & Art Center
I heard rumors that CB is finally throwing off the shackles of Mark Schroeder and going back to voting with her heart.
This Monday she will pledge the support of the Town...
The Erie County Republican Committee has endorsed Michael (Mickey) Kearns in the special election for the assembly seat formerly held by Marc Schroeder. The 145th assembly district is comprised of South Buffalo, West Seneca and Orchard Park. Even though Mickey is a Democrat, the GOP supports his...
seriously, i am interested as to how this process works.
Last night (April 6th) the West Seneca Youth Bureau held a grand opening at the "Metz House", a 165+ year old house rebuilt by the West Seneca Americorp and West Seneca "Youth Build" groups. It is a very impressive reuse of an historic old building.
Mark Lazzara should be commended for his...
So, who is this little kid talking about running for the State Assembly against Jack Quinn?
I saw him on TV playing his violin. He reminded me of a 17 year old Jack Benny.
The guy can't even vote for himself yet. He has no experience, either in the community, in school or for that matter in...
Interesting article in Sunday's Buffalo News about former West Seneca Assessor Ed Hummell (sp?). (Sorry, I don't have the article up in front of me).
Seems interesting he "low-balled" the assessments on all these properties, but they can't find a payoff, cash, or any other "reason". All they...
Finally, Paul Clark will be leaving his perch as West Seneca Supervisor, as he is a "declared" candidate for County Executive.
Who will take his place? Any comments?
I don't want to see a "Poll", just some observations.
On Sunday, June 3rd, Dan Shanahan, Jr. was killed on the way to work at the Lakeview Shock Facility. Dan was a Corrections Officer for the State of New York, but was also the Chief of the Seneca Hose Fire Company, in West Seneca.
It was a horrendous crash. The Brockton Fire Company did their...
Someone told me that at the West Seneca Town Board Meeting last Monday (10/6), Councilman Dale Clarke called Supervisor Wally Piotrowski "a Communist".
Is this really true? Did Clarke apologize afterwards?
I just took a ride and noticed the flags in front of the WS Town Hall and Library, as well as in front of one of the schools, are at half staff.
Does anyone know why, and/or for whom?
Nothing is on the local or network web sites.
Time and time again I read posts here on Speakup complaining about our West Seneca Town Board members and our Town elected officials, how they either get along, or just obediently follow along, or not get along at all.
Isn't it time for some new people to get involved in WS politics?
I heard a rumor today the Cheektowaga Town Council member Charlie Markel might run against Tina Bove for the 9th Dist. Erie County Legislature seat. Both are Dems, so it would be another hot Primary!
The current district includes all of West Seneca and South Cheektowaga. Who knows what it...
The WS town board is moving the projects into West Seneca?? They want to put a housing project for the severely and persistently mentally ill, right in the middle of hundreds of homes on Burch, Wildwood, Chamberlain, Manhasset, Edson, Duerstein, Mt Vernon, Savona, etc... The project is an apartment...
