Amherst Photos Wanted

Deputy Supervisor Guy Marlette is asking Amherst residents to submit their favorite Amherst photos for showcasing on the Town’s website.  Marlette states “We have had such positive feedback from the Garden Walk display on our homepage, it would be great to continue to highlight aspects of our great community”.

Photos can be scenes from parks, your neighborhood, your child’s sporting event, parades, events, and our local landscapes-- there are numerous venues to choose from highlighting what a beautiful Town we share. All submissions will require a release before posting and all photos accepted become property of the Town of Amherst.

Photos will be shown in scrolling fashion on the Town’s website and the display will change periodically.  Photos should be submitted electronically in a JPEG or TIF file format. Representatives from the Youth, Recreation, and the Senior Center will choose the photos to be displayed.

Sidewalk Snow Relief Pilot Program

Sidewalk Snow Relief Pilot Program

 

(Amherst, NY) The Town of Amherst is preparing for a pilot program of providing sidewalk snow relief services along segments of Maple Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard as a pilot study. The segments are Maple Road from Millersport Highway to Transit Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard from Kenmore Avenue to Betina Avenue. A letter was recently sent to all residents all these segments. These are the two roads whose residents responded positively for relief when the town polled in March 2011.

Sidewalk snow relief along these corridors remains a priority for the Town Board. The Town Highway Department will provide the service.  Property owners will not be assessed any fee for this service in their 2012 Town tax bill.  The study will evaluate the service and be used to support future decision-making.
