OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

July 2017 Column - Thank you to all who responded after the tornado

We all recall back in November 2014 when our community got 7+ feet of snow but some neighboring towns had nothing more than a dusting. Well, on July 20, 2017, Hamburg once again took the brunt of a major weather event when the first tornado in Erie County since 2006 came through a section of the town. It seems that our community gets more than our “fair share” of natural disasters, but I know we can handle it.
