Aurora/East Aurora

Newly appointed Aurora Town Board member Charles Snyder hopes to find ways to save money during the year ahead.

“I’m excited,” he said at the end of the board meeting Monday evening. “I think there are places where we could become more efficient.”

A former member of the Planning Board, Snyder applied for the opening created by James Bach’s election to supervisor. He has a business building homes, and last year he helped oversee the $877,000-worth of renovations at the Southside Municipal Building.

Synder will serve the rest of this year, the last in Bach’s old term, and then he plans run for election in the fall.

“I know a lot about construction,” said Snyder. “I know a lot about this building and I think I can help.”

Also this week:

• The East Aurora Village Board meets at 7 p.m. Monday at Village Hall, 571 Main Street.

• The East Aurora Board of Education meets at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Middle School library, 430 Main Street.
