Orchard Park

The Town Board appointed five part-time public safety dispatchers last week at a rate of $13.15 per hour.

The civilian dispatchers will be working out of the newly-renovated dispatch center in the Police Department. The town decided last year to move to all-civilian dispatchers, in an effort to put more police on the street while providing up-to-date technology for dispatching.

The board also appointed Aqua Tech Environmental to treat Green Lake and Pleasant Acres Pond for algae and plants and to stock various town-owned lakes and ponds with fish.

Also this week:

• The Town Board will conduct a work session at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the municipal center, 4295 S. Buffalo St. Disaster Coordinator Richard Mrugalski will conduct a table top exercise in disaster preparedness with the Town Board. The program will be held in the old tax office.

• The village Zoning Board of Appeals will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the municipal center.
