The Town of Cheektowaga is Western New York’s leading location for companies, families, and visitors alike. Our diverse economic base includes professional firms, innovative manufacturers, logistics operations, and retail/hospitality businesses. Cheektowaga’s unparalleled combination of air, rail, and highway access, livable residential neighborhoods, high-quality education and recreation, world-class shopping, and convenience to all of upstate New York and Southern Ontario, makes us the Hub of the Niagara Frontier. Cheektowaga, as the home to this region’s leading transportation hub, the
Buffalo Niagara International Airport, and Walden Galleria, the premier shopping destination, is very familiar to our Canadian neighbors who utilize both heavily. Cheektowaga is well positioned to provide Canadian companies and investors looking to expand into the United States with a home away from home.

Due to the State of Emergency declared by Governor Cuomo, Cheektowaga's Sanitation Department is required to make the following changes:

• All grass pick-up will be temporarily suspended until the State of Emergency ends. The town council recently cancelled a public hearing to consider a permanent end to grass pickup, but as of now no resolution has passed changing grass pickup on a permanent basis.

• Only town-authorized garbage and recyclable totes shall be used for collection by the Town. No bags outside of both the town-authorized garbage and recycling totes will be picked up. Please place all non-recyclable garbage in garbage bags before they are put into the tote.

• Large household furniture will be limited to one item at curbside. In addition, large amounts of solid waste left at the curb will not be picked up. A dumpster should be rented for any of your move-outs or spring cleaning. Mattresses will still be picked up but must be placed in a plastic bag.

• “Brush” and “tree parts” defined as cuttings from shrubs, hedges and trees will be picked up, however, residents must bring them loosely to the road and cannot use containers or bags.

In order for garbage and recycling collection to continue, it is of the utmost importance to keep our town employees safe from being exposed to COVID-19. Our town Sanitation Department is working collaboratively with other departments to provide both safety and service to our community. Sanitation Foreman Scott Kowal said, “We thank our residents for their cooperation during these difficult times. I am very proud of my employees for continuing to serve residents during this crisis.”

If you have any questions, please contact our Sanitation Department at (716) 686-3426.

Economic impact payments: What you need to know | Internal Revenue Service

Here's an important article from the IRS about the direct cash payments that were passed under the stimulus act. Hopefully this will answer many of the questions that Cheektowaga residents have been asking about eligibility, income calculation and whether you need to file to receive a check or deposit.

IR-2020-61, March 30, 2020 — The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service today announced that distribution of economic impact payments will begin in the next three weeks and will be distributed automatically, with no action required for most people.


Our Senior Services Department has been made aware of two great organizations looking for volunteers during this time of crisis:

Resurrection Life Food Pantry: The pantry is located at 2145 Old Union Road in Cheektowaga and is busier than ever helping families in our community during this difficult time. If you are interested and available in lending a hand, please email [email protected] and someone will get back to you with details on how you can get involved.

FeedMore WNY: We have volunteer opportunities packing emergency food boxes at our warehouse at 91 Holt St. in Buffalo as well as packing bags for our BackPack program in our Community Learning Center at 100 James E Casey Drive in Buffalo. These opportunities are Mondays through Saturdays from 8 am - 5 pm. We are asking volunteers to commit to a 4-hour shift but they could stay for less or more based on their availability. We can accommodate up to 20 volunteers per shift per location. Anyone interested in helping with either of these opportunities should call FeedMore WNY at 822-2002 and ask to be connected to their Volunteer Department."

If you find yourself uninsured due to job loss from #COVID19, NY State of Health and the NYS Department of Financial Services are allowing a special enrollment period to obtain health insurance.

NY State of Health and New York State Department of Financial Services Announce Special Enrollment Period for Uninsured New Yorkers, as Novel Coronavirus Cases Climb.

The enrollment period is open between March 16 and April 15, 2020. Please find more information at this link:

Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH)


There are news reports about a “test” site. Those stories are misleading and we hope they are corrected. ECDOH is collecting samples for #covid19 testing today ONLY for people scheduled by our epidemiology office. Anyone who shows up without an appointment *will be turned away.*




Hello Everyone,

I realize we are all trying to take care of our families and ourselves and to be home as much as possible. As an essential service, FeedMore WNY is still operating their home-delivered meals program (Meals on Wheels) and their list of seniors asking for temporarily delivery to get them through this crisis continues to grow.

The need for volunteers is also growing. Just a week ago things were still good and most meal routes were covered – but many of the dedicated volunteers are seniors themselves and now they must keep themselves well and have made the difficult choice to stay home.

I am asking anyone who is well and willing to consider volunteering helping with this.

Currently I am looking for a two-person team (one driver and one deliverer) to help at the LORD OF LIFE CHURCH LOCATION on Thursdays, starting this week and possibly helping through April, depending on how long this pandemic lasts. You would be needed from about 11:15am-12:15 pm and believe me, FeedMore WNY has a very organized system so it is easy to do.

Please contact me if you are interested in helping during this difficult situation.

Thank you for your consideration.

Stay well,

Kerry A. Peek
