Erie County Legislator Joseph C. Lorigo toured the Aurora Senior Center recently with Director Donna Bodekor to see the improvements and upgrades made as a result of funding that Legislator Lorigo secured in the 2017 Erie County budget. With the money allocated ($2,000), the senior center purchased a new laptop, a projector, upgraded the sound system, and replaced outdated furniture in the library.  The audiovisual equipment will be used for presentations, classes, and a variety of events planned at the Center.


“Going through last year’s budget process, I thought it was important to allocate funding for community groups in order to support their efforts.  One of the organizations I identified was the Aurora Senior Center and I am extremely pleased with the work that Donna and her staff do to serve the greater East Aurora community’s seniors. It is great to see the additional County funding going to such an important use. Now the center will have better technology for educational programs like the county’s University Express classes, which are a huge benefit for all who use the center.  I’m also happy to see newer, more comfortable furniture in the wonderful ‘Honor Library’ in place at the Center.  I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the new upgrades,” said Legislator Lorigo.


“Thank you to Legislator Lorigo for providing funding for our Senior Center, which made several upgrades possible. The new equipment has made attending events and classes much easier for our members and has truly enhanced their experience here,” said Director Bodekor.


The additional funding was added into the 2017 budget without increasing overall spending and while decreasing the property tax rate for the third consecutive year.
