OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

Reconstruction of Brighton Road in Tonawanda begins

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick (R-4th District), joined Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz, Town of Tonawanda Supervisor Anthony Caruana, Town of Tonawanda Highway Superintendent William Swanson, Erie County Commissioner of the Department of Public Works John Loffredo, and representatives of the Erie County and Town of Tonawanda Highway Departments to announce extensive upcoming repairs to Brighton Road. The $2 million project, which will affect the stretch of Brighton between Fries Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard, will include a total road reconstruction along with the construction of new storm sewers, curbs, and the installation of new traffic signals.

August 2014 Column - Cooperation between county, towns helps repair roads

It is no secret that the county road system was in sorry shape even before the harsh winter of 2014. Some people I talk with blame the Red and Green Budget mess of 2005 with its Draconian cuts to the county Department of Public Works. Others say it has always been that way even before 2005. Regardless, it was obvious to everyone this spring that something had to be done.

Legislator Hardwick announces Brighton Road reconstruction to begin mid-August

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces that the contract to reconstruct Brighton Road was approved at today’s session, Thursday, July 24, 2014.  The $2.65 million project is expected to begin in mid-August.

July 2014 Column - Land Bank already making a difference in the community

Sometimes it seems like government cannot do anything right. This perception is certainly shared by many. This is understandable, given the problems at government agencies from the Department of Veterans Affairs at the federal level to the Hamburg School Board at the local level. For this reason, it is important that people know about the land bank.

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces that the Boys and Girls Club of the Northtowns and the Town of Tonawanda Recreation have received funding through Erie County’s Primetime Program to support summer activities. The organizations received $10,000 each.
