Erie County

County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz will hold a town hall style meeting on his 2014 budget proposal from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. Wednesday in the Frank E. Merriweather Library, 1324 Jefferson Ave.

The county executive will be joined at the meeting by Legislature Chairwoman Betty Jean Grant and local community members.

In addition to the budget, the meeting will also focus on a report that was recently issued by the Erie County Medicaid Inspector General’s office which detailed discrepancies in Medicaid usage between white and minority recipients, as well as the rise in residents seeking public assistance across the county.
