  • 10/19/2018 : COMPTROLLER MYCHAJLIW MEETS WITH WEST SENECA SENIORS

    During the popular West Seneca Senior Center Health Fair, Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw Jr. provided his “Senior Fraud Protection Program” to the many seniors that attended. The event allowed taxpayers to discuss concerns they may have and to pick up an information booklet that they can reference at any time to help protect against being victimized by a scammer.

  • 10/18/2018 : COMPTROLLER, FIRE CHIEF INSPECT CLOSED COUNTY ROAD THAT CREATED HARDSHIP FOR FIRST RESPONDERS

    Erie County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw Jr. met with Morton's Corners Fire Company Chief Steve Bugary to examine crumbling county roads in his fire district.  The dilapidated county roadways the Comptroller and Fire Chief inspected were Trevett Road, Zoar Valley Road and Groth Road in the Town of Concord.  Chief Bugary spoke about the hardship the fire company faces when Erie County shut down Trevett Road.  The closure forced emergency responders to use an alternative route, which they say will increase response times for emergency personnel.

Mychajliw Jr.  Despite a significant drop in Canadian bridge traffic going back almost 20 years, more taxpayers are spending money locally, which strengthened Erie County government’s largest source of revenue: sales tax revenue.
