Southern Erie County

The Marilla Town Board last week approved a request for proposal done by town engineers Nussbaumer and Clark for a farmland protection plan.

The board also directed the town attorney to review what organization is a town entity. Questions have been raised about whether the library or historical society need a permit or insurance to hold events according to the new Local Law 2013 for gatherings and events.
