Thank you Chief Denz for 32 years of dedicated service in protecting the residents of Town of West Seneca.

I wish you all the best in the next chapter of your career!

West Seneca Police Chief Daniel Denz is resigning from the department to take a job as a law enforcement consultant, he announced today.
Denz has been with the department since 1989, and chief since 2013.
"I have spent my entire adult life serving the citizens of this community, and it has been my honor to do so," he said.
He thanked his fellow members of law enforcement for their service.
"Police work is bigger than any one individual, but great things are accomplished as a cohesive unit," he said.
Denz's last day on the job will be July 9.

June 19th, is a day to reflect on our past and an important opportunity to commemorate and celebrate Black history, culture and freedom- as this is the anniversary of the public announcement to the end of slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865.

I also hope this holiday celebration serves as a reminder for everyone in our communities to move forward together.

I was pleased to personally deliver this mortgage tax distribution check to Mayor Iafallo and Lackawanna NY - City Government. These funds are a major source of revenue for many of the County’s cities, towns and villages.

In these unprecedented times it is essential to provide municipalities the financial information as soon as available so we can better assist them budget and plan their operating budgets accordingly for the upcoming fiscal year.

ERIE COUNTY CLERK DELIVERS OVER $89K IN MORTGAGE TAX REVENUE TO LACKAWANNA

Yesterday, Monday, June 15, Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns visited Lackawanna City Hall to present Mayor Annette Iafallo with a check for $89,965.89 – representing Lackawanna’s share of mortgage tax collections recorded by the Erie County Clerk’s office for the period October 21, 2020 through March 31, 2021.

Like many other communities locally and across the country, Lackawanna is experiencing a very strong real estate sales market. Listed properties are selling very fast, with many sales occurring at well over list price. This trend had a positive impact on the amount of mortgage tax revenue Lackawanna received for this recording period, which is up 23% (nearly $17,000) vs the same period last year.

Mortgage taxes collected by the Erie County Clerk’s Office are distributed twice a year to the county’s cities, towns and villages. The amount received is determined by the number of total mortgages recorded in each municipality during the applicable period. The next mortgage tax distribution will be in October.

Thank you to Erie County Clerk Kearns for delivering this great news to Lackawanna!
