Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick, R-District 10, and his staff will be available to meet with residents during three district outreach meetings scheduled in January.
"Through these district outreach meetings I am able to meet directly with residents and discuss their concerns and answer questions about county issues," Hardwick said. "This is a great setting for open and real dialogue about what matters most to the residents I was elected to represent."
Information about Senior Services, Social Services, Veteran Affairs, the county clerk's office and other departments will be available. A Winter Activities Guide, with information about activities in the county's parks, also will be available.

•9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Jan. 10, at the Town of the Tonawanda Senior Center, 291 Ensminger Road, Tonawanda.
•1 to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 10, at the City of Tonawanda Library, 333 Main St., Tonawanda.
•9:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at Tonawanda Senior Center, 33 Main St., Tonawanda.

Auto bureau to remain open New Year's Eve
While other county offices and auto bureau locations will be closed on Dec. 31, Erie County Clerk Kathy Hochul said she will keep the Cheektowaga office open to serve the public from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
"We want to ensure no disruption in service to anyone who needs last-minute assistance, so we are keeping the largest office open. Every transaction done in one of our offices, rather than online or through the mail, means more revenue for the county taxpayers," said Hochul.
Under the agreement Hochul negotiated with the union, the office will be open this Friday, but closed on the following Monday, so no additional expenses will result.
