Where We Live: Orchard Park

Orchard Park

Orchard Park’s proposed 2014 town budget will be unveiled at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday during a work session in the supervisor’s conference room in the municipal center.

Department heads will have an opportunity to ask questions on the budget, and Police Chief Mark Pacholec will give a presentation on the proposed police department budget at 6:15 p.m. in the board room. Supervisor Janis Colarusso said the police budget has the largest increase in spending of any section of the budget.

She said the budget stays within the 1.66 percent tax cap, and gives 2 percent raises to all non-union staff, department heads and elected officials except the supervisor and Town Board members.

“The 2014 supervisor’s proposed budget was orchestrated by me,” Colarusso said. “The budget for 2014 was very challenging, much more than any of my previous three years.”

Also this week:

• The Village Board will hold a meeting at 7 p.m. Monday in the municipal center, 4295 S. Buffalo St.

• The School Board will conduct a work session at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the administrative building, 2240 Southwestern Blvd., West Seneca, to review the district’s Comprehensive District Education Plan.
