The Amherst Town Board will hold its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday in the council chambers of the Amherst Municipal Building, 5583 Main St., Williamsville. The meeting will be preceded by a work session at 3 p.m.

The family and friends of a 13-year-old girl who was killed in June while crossing Maple Road are expected to address the board.

Relatives of Erin Suszynski have raised more than $80,000 to install a lighted crosswalk in front of the playground where Suszynski was struck.

The family, which is now seeking the town and county’s assistance with the crosswalk project, is expected to push for more support from elected leaders for the plan.
