Legislature changes meeting to Tuesday
LITTLE VALLEY -- The Cattaraugus County Legislature has changed this week's meeting date to accommodate several lawmakers who plan to be out of town Wednesday for the New York State Association of Counties' annual convention.
Legislators will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday instead of Wednesday's usual 3 p.m. meeting time. A joint Finance/County Operations Committee meeting has been scheduled in the Large Committee Room immediately following the legislative session.
Also, a public hearing will be held at 3:01 p.m. Sept. 28 on a local law changing the Cattaraugus Empire Zone boundaries, a postponement from the scheduled 3:01 p.m. Wednesday time.
All meetings are held in the third-floor Legislative Chambers at the County Center, 303 Court St.
Council and committees won't meet this week
OLEAN -- The regular Tuesday meetings of the Olean Common Council and its committees were rescheduled this week to avoid a conflict with the primary elections. The sessions normally set for this week were held last Tuesday. The usual meeting dates of Sept. 20 and 27 will not be affected.
New highway signs to mark the Niagara Wine Trail
