Erie County Legislature Majority Leader Joseph Lorigo has reached out to New York State leaders asking them to explore all possible options to assist West Seneca residents whose homes were flooded earlier this month. Legislator Lorigo sponsored a resolution at the Jan. 23 session requesting State aid for victims. The item received the unanimous support of the Legislature and copies will be forward to state officials immediately as residents continue to deal with the impact of the flood.

 

“I have met with residents and attended the meeting at Winchester Community Church to hear about the hardships residents are facing as a result of the ice jam and subsequent flooding. In response to requests from residents and local officials, the state sent a mobile unit to discuss insurance claims, which is appreciated, however, New York State has additional resources available and I urge Governor Cuomo to explore all possible options to assist residents,” said Legislator Lorigo.
