Bee Heard

.There is absolutely zero transparency in the Village of Depew with the mayor and the administrator. I don’t even think they understand what this budget process is. They have neglected to inform residents. It’s time residents hold their feet to the fire.

.There is nothing wrong with the residents of Depew. We do not mind paying our Depew village taxes. The problem with the taxes is what we pay to Lancaster and Cheektowaga for which we receive no services.

.The condition of St. Mary’s Cemetery in Lancaster is appalling. The grass is cut, but the grass around the stones has to be at least two feet tall. And since when have the hallowed grounds become a parking lot for three white trucks, a trailer, snowplow blades and a boat? It looks like a a junkyard. Shame on you.
