Volunteers For

Reapportionment panel

Chautauqua County Legislature Chairman Pierre Chagnon is seeking interested individuals willing to serve on a bipartisan Reapportionment Commission to assist the County Legislature in evaluating the existing County legislative districts as a result of the population data provided by the 2020 Census.

Individuals who may be interested in serving on this commission are asked to email Kathy Tampio, Clerk of the Legislature at tampiok@chqgov.com.

Money Received For Equipment

Southern Tier West Regional Planning has received $395,000 to purchase broadband equipment and backhaul fiber for eight communities in Allegany, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties. The funding was announced recently by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York. The funding was administered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program. “This federal funding will make critical investments into New York’s rural communities – expanding access to reliable Internet, helping ensure the safety of public water systems, and providing local businesses and agricultural producers with the technical assistance they need to thrive,” Gillibrand said. “I will continue fighting for funding that improves infrastructure, closes the digital divide, and enhances economic opportunity in our rural communities.”
