Erie County Legislature approves local news outlet as official paper of Erie County for 2021
Legislator Kevin Hardwick again announces the Grand Island Dispatch will serve as one of the official newspapers of Erie County for the 2021 legislative year.
Nominated at the 2021 reorganizational meeting along with three other local papers, the Island Dispatch will publish official notifications and concurrent resolutions from the Erie County Legislature and other county departments pursuant to state law.
Hardwick, who represents Grand Island, said: “I believe solid, local news outlets are more vital now to our democracy than perhaps ever before. Many Erie County residents still rightly use newspapers as their main source of information. I’m pleased the Grand Island Dispatch, a very reputable source, will remain one of the official means of communication Erie County uses to keep residents updated with vital and important information through 2021.”
