Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick and Grand Island Supervisor Mary Cooke announce that the county and town have partnered to outfit various offices in town hall with furniture from the county’s surplus warehouse, saving the town money.

 

“The county maintains a surplus of office equipment and makes items available to local governments who are in need of furniture or other supplies. We are able to save taxpayers by reusing and recycling items not currently needed by the county,” said Legislator Hardwick. “This partnership provides the town with many the materials it was in need of at no cost.”

 

Among the items donated are a book shelf, tables, chairs, dry erase board and a turnstile that was used at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The furniture will be used throughout town offices, including the Recreation Center, Town Hall and the Police Department.

 

“I was pleased to learn about this opportunity and that the town was able to find several pieces of equipment we needed. By taking these items from the county’s surplus, the town saved money that would have been spent to buy or upgrade our furniture,” said Supervisor Cooke.
