Legislator Kevin Hardwick has announced that the Island Dispatch will again serve as one of the official newspapers of Erie County for the 2020 legislative year.
Nominated at the 2020 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, stated: “Despite the advent of social media, printed news is now more important than ever. Many of our residents still use newspapers as their main source of information. I’m pleased the Grand Island Dispatch, a reputable source of information, will remain one of the official means of communication Erie County maintains to keep residents updated with important information.”
