Public Invited to Meeting at ECC South: Create a New Vision for Libraries and Services

Re-Imagine! - The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System

HAMBURG, N. Y. -- The public is invited to share its ideas for the regional library system of the future through a series of public meetings, web surveys and focus groups; all part of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System's newly launched Re-Imagine campaign. 

"This is an exciting as well as a challenging time for the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System," said Bridget Quinn-Carey, director of the Library System.  "We are beginning a process to re-imagine the library and create a new vision that will meet the needs of the entire community; a library that will not only accommodate the types of  services that are so heavily used currently, but one that will satisfy the needs of our users for innovative services in the years ahead."  

Local Powerlifter is Training Other Athletes to Win

In his early teens, Steve Helmicki considered himself a bit of an undersized football player, which led him to begin training in his parents’ attic with a DP vinyl and sand weight set and a Bill Grant fitness manual. While countless other young athletes might have a similar story to tell, very few — if any — have ever taken it quite as far as Helmicki.

Questions Over EC Plan For Rental Of Parks' Homes

An Erie County official could soon be a new temporary tenant in Wendt Beach Park under a new rental plan which is drawing fire from some county lawmakers.

County Commissioner for Environment and Planning Kathy Konst is slated to move on November 1st into the former superintendent's home at the park for a month to month arrangement of $650 dollars. Konst, who makes nearly $100,000 as commissioner , has agreed to pay utilities and make some further renovations to the home which the county parks department has already spruced up.

But Legislator Thomas Loughran says he will request a formal Comptroller's audit of the rental of homes in county parks . Loughran says "We need to get to the bottom of this. We need to know if this was properly advertised. You know we already know that there's no lease and I think this smacks of cronyism."
