Du Drop Athletic Club honored on 60th Anniversary


OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

Legislator Ted Morton recently visited Como Lake Park to observe the rapid deterioration of the lake.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) began his yearly summer listening tour this week that will have him visiting with residents in Lancaster, Cheektowaga, Depew and Alden.

A few weeks ago, the Legislature approved changes to the Erie County Charter that were recommended by an all-volunteer citizens committee. With County Executive approval, the measure would have gone to the ballot for the public to have their say and vote on in November. Unfortunately the County Executive chose to veto the recommended changes. As a result, the Legislature anticipates voting on an amended version later this month, including some changes suggested by the County Executive. While I’m disappointed that the original package was vetoed, I’m optimistic that a revised version will be passed and that the public will have the opportunity to vote on it this November.

Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) announced that the Legislature has authorized the start of the construction phase on Losson Road between Borden and Transit roads in Lancaster.

Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) calls on the Erie County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department to hold town hall meetings to provide public input on Erie County Parks Master Plan.
