Where We Live: Hamburg


The Town Board has joined other towns in calling on the Erie County executive and legislature to help resolve the issue of payment for the plowing of county roads.

Town highway superintendents and the county have not yet agreed on how much the county will pay towns to plow county roads.

While Hamburg town crews do not plow any county roads, board members said town residents drive on county roads in other towns, and they want to show solidarity with the other towns.

Also, Hamburg village officials have agreed to have the owners of 12 Main St. develop and renovate the village-owned green space and parking lot on the village parcel at the corner of Main and Buffalo streets.

Since it is one of the main gateways to the village, board members are looking for a well-planned space open to the public, with a decorative brick half-wall and landscaping.
