Where we live: Orchard Park

Orchard Park

Councilman Michael Sherry is looking for volunteers for a Government Efficiencies Task Force to examine government operations and find ways to save money and time, and to improve services.

Created at last week’s Town Board meeting, the task force will review, among other things, the police department’s budgeting process to see if it can be streamlined, Sherry said.

The committee will have five to seven members and will start meeting once a few people have signed up. People with expertise in budgeting and business operations are invited to apply.

“We definitely want some capable people within the community,” Sherry said. “This type of work tends to be quite specialized .. It’ll likely go on for several years. It has both a broad and a narrow focus.”

Those interested in applying should call Town Hall at 662-6400 and leave a message for Sherry, or e-mail him at

Also this week:

• A regular meeting of the Orchard Park School Board begins at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday in the district office, 2240 Southwestern Blvd.

• The Town Board has a work session at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the board room of the Municipal Center, 4295 S. Buffalo St.
