    Why are their 2 disaster coordinators ? one for the Village & Town ?

    Why are their 2 disaster coordinators ? one for the Village & Town ? O wait more brand new take home luxury Tahoe's LOL Only in Erie County will find every town has a disaster coordinator, The rest of country has 1 for a whole county lol, What Erie County towns don't have is a Town Manager who has to have a master degree in Accounting/business management & have years of experence and a town Fire Chief who has degrees in Fire Science, Management & Emergency Medicine etc... and have years of experence.

    Seeing people harp on Jennifer7 I would like to have this post confirmed.

    Do many towns in Erie County have 2 disaster coordinators?

    Do they receive take home Tahoe's?

    Do our local towns have Town Managers who have to have a master degree in Accounting/business management & have years of experience and a town Fire Chief who has degrees in Fire Science, Management & Emergency Medicine etc... and have years of experience.

    Why do you need 2 ? Isn't that called duplication. better yet Cheektowaga, West Seneca etc... all have one too. But then again if read any Erie County City, Town, Village etc.. Council Meetings Minutes you won't find any of these words Save Money, Cut Costs. Be Financial Responsible to the Taxpayer, or The Future
