Legislator Morton announces funding for district roadways


OFFICE HIGHLIGHTS

As we start 2017 I wanted to talk about some of my priorities and the challenges we will face in Erie County.

Just last week the Legislature approved the 2017 Erie County budget and I’m pleased to report that we were able to fund our key initiatives residents expect and deserve while delivering a small tax rate cut. Since taking office I’ve pledged to fight for a tax cut every year that I’m in office and I’m proud to report that this will be the third year in a row that we’ve been successful in that effort.


Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) announces that the Erie County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department will hold two focus group sessions to gather public opinion on Como Lake Park as the department works to update the Parks Master Plan.

Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga) announces that a measure has been passed unanimously by the County Legislature urging New York State to enact new policies to encourage living organ donation. With the rates of living donors dropping, several policies including donor reimbursement, tax deductions for lost wages, and long term follow up medical care for donors has been recommended to help rebuild the donor base in New York State.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton (R-Cheektowaga), with the support of community partners, announces his 3rd  annual Food Drive to benefit the Alden-Marilla Community Food Pantry and Tri-Community Food Pantry. Non-perishable goods will be collected from Monday, Nov. 21 through Monday, Dec. 12.

Erie County Legislator Ted Morton announces that the proposed 2014 Road Project List, which was released today, includes funding for Rowley Road, between Indian and Borden, in Cheektowaga.

 

“Rowley Road is a crucial roadway into the Village of Depew and has been neglected for far too long. Residents and motorists are overdue for serious relief. Following an extremely harsh winter, I am pleased to see this roadway included on the project list,” said Legislator Morton.

 

Also scheduled for repair this year is the Alden Crittenden Road Bridge.

 

On April 10, Legislator Morton and his colleagues in the Majority Caucus called for a special session for 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 24 to ensure the 2014 Road Project List is reviewed and approved as soon as possible.
