Where we live: West Seneca

West Seneca

A Democratic primary for West Seneca supervisor appears to be taking shape following the announcement of Christina Wleklinski Bove, a former councilwoman and county legislator, that she will challenge incumbent Sheila Meegan. West Seneca Democrats are set to endorse one of them at their May 16 meeting.

Main Street Marketplace opens for its second season Thursday.

The outdoor market runs from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, through Sept. 3, on the grassy hill adjacent to Town Hall. In case of wet weather, it’s moved to the parking lot in front of the town ice rink.

The farmers’ market also features local entertainment from approximately 5:30 to 7 p.m., weather permitting. Local community groups host an information table at the market each week.

This week:

• A Town Board work session will be held at 3 p.m. Monday in Council Chambers at Town Hall, 1250 Union Road. The board’s regular meeting begins at 7.

• The West Seneca School Board meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the board room at West Elementary School, 1397 Orchard Park Road.

• Erie County Legislator Joseph Lorigo, in partnership with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and West Seneca Police Department, is hosting a free Car Seat Safety Check & Child ID Card Day for families. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot behind the West Seneca Library, 1300 Union Road, near Main Street.
