Where we live: Cheektowaga


Vacancies in the municipal workforce, resulting from the retirement of department heads, have been filled from within.

Last week, the Town Board approved the appointment of Patrick Bowen as town engineer. He will succeed William R. Pugh, whose retirement becomes effective Aug. 15.

Bowen, currently serving as assistant town engineer, was hired in June 2008. His new annual salary will be $86,000.

Pugh has been with the town since May 1978. In a separate action last week, he was retained as an engineering department consultant at a daily rate of $366, effective Aug. 18.

Meanwhile, last month’s retirement of Thomas J. Adamczak, supervising code enforcement officer, created another vacancy, which was filled temporarily. The board approved an interim appointment for Carla A. Kosmerl, who was hired in November 2012 as director of community development.
