WHEATFIELD – The Niagara County Legislature unanimously confirmed two new department heads at a special meeting Wednesday night at the county Center for Economic Development in Wheatfield.
William H. Flynn, a Gasport resident who has worked in the private sector for 28 years, was approved as information technology director. Donald J. Jablonski Jr. of the Town of Lockport, already a county employee, became employment and training director.
Flynn is to be paid $86,916 per year and Jablonski is to earn $61,807. Both men were appointed by County Manager Richard E. Updegrove.
Flynn succeeds Larry L. Helwig, who retired in early August.
Jablonski replaces Thomas M. Jaccarino, who left Employment and Training in late August to become director of eligibility at the county Social Services Department.
Legislature Chairman W. Keith McNall said Jablonski agreed to resign his longtime chairmanship of the Town of Lockport Republican Committee, at the request of Minority Leader Dennis F. Virtuoso, D-Niagara Falls.
