What happens to the Silver Creek owned Police department vehicles? Perhaps sell them for some financial recovery?

Deloniak, idiot, private security do not have police and arrest powers in NYS. The Sheriff by contract will have a car dedicated to the Village 24/7, plus if a major crime is committed, the Sheriff has dedicated criminal investigators, so the patrolman can go back on patrol. Silver Creek now has all the benefits, resources and experience of a larger Police Dept. SCPD became a big joke, no real leadership, that was the downfall.

Silver Creek is much like Dunkirk in why it is a horrible place to live 1) horrible police departments that waste money and 2) noise pollution from the trains and then theres the little thing of no jobs...It was the right decision to eliminate the police department, it was the wrong decision to turn services over to the sherifs office. They should have hired a private security firm. Good for Silver Creek in eliminating their gestapho, next should be the Dunkirk Pigs. How many pigs do you need doing road patrols, wasting gas and money..time to cut the fat..oink oink.

Cont: you must have an axed to grind with the Borrello family. You state that all of these issue could be solved if certain people would get over it and start working to solve the problems. Well the board did a great job of that after the flood now didn't they. They could have merged the DPW with the town but chose to stay status quote. They chose to buy outside the village and cost of more money. Who where some of these people, the same ones that are at every meeting with nothing to do with their lives but complain. What will they do if they dissolve the village. I love seeing police in the village all the time. Something Roach was not able to accomplish because he like some of the previous board members (Anna) thought they owned the village. Keeping it for real, move on people. And not the board does not make $26,000, however Roche made $65,000. Then add in medical, retirement, cost of the cars, repairs and insurance. Tell me there's no savings. SEETHRUNY!

Ournotgonalikeme: you won't like me either. Wow, a .02 cent decrease. Well it is better than the increases we have had over the last 10 years. When a how owner with an assessed value of $100,000 is paying over $400 a month in taxes is wrong. We need to start somewhere and a little something is better than nothing or an increase. As for the Bogosians, yes they have done a lot for this community no doubt but the means can not take care of just the few. They do not in any way have more say than any other tax payer in this village. Did they move here because Silver Creek is a great place to raise children or was it because of the police force?

First off no one likes change. Second, it had to happen because the tax payers can no longer sustain the tax rates. I have seen more police presence with the sheriffs than I did the the local police force. 30 people showed up out of how many that live int he village. The constant complainers I see where there. Unfortunately these same complainers are making the village look even worse. If you don't like it then time for you to make a change and leave. But until then lets try and work together to solve the outrageous taxes we pay.

The public is being misinformed by a group of individuals who enjoy stirring the pot. I asked and got answers First, The Sheriffs Office now has a dedicated car to strictly to the Village of Silver Creek 24/7. This car is not allowed to leave the Village unless they are backing up the Town of Hanover patrol on a "emergency" situation or to follow up on a Village complaint. Officers are not allowed to leave the Village to take breaks, eat or police. Isn't this better than seeing the Chargers sitting on 5/20 everyday. The only change anyone has seen is the same Silver Creek officers are driving different cars.

PR24601 a couple things you say don't make alot of sense. First off, no police presence? They abolished the village police, they still have police patrolling and responding to calls within the village. Number two, the reason Dunkirk has such a big police presence is the same reason why Silver Creek has the same police presence. When you only have 1 or 2 square miles to patrol, 1 or 2 patrol cars is a huge presence.

Once again you have everyone bickering when in reality, what most want is what's most important, and that would be the safety and security of the residents.

It's a sad day in WNY, the village has to let go of their police force because there's no way they can sustain the costs. No local police presence in a village can have consequences. How long til petty crime, undesirables, etc become an issue in SC?

Maybe it won't be an issue. Who knows. We have a big police presence here in DK and the place is still a ****hole. Hopefully SC is fine going forward.

But hopefully news like this starts to hit home when we (NY'ers) say enough is enough! We can't continue to prop up the poor, provide unlimited welfare, pay for pensions for people who don't work, etc. as pop. base declines and costs go up.

Hats off to the Mayor and board.People fail to realize the continuing costs that the village had to incur if they kept the police department.Retirement,health benefits,equipment and who has to pay these benefits.Not just a couple thousand people but all of Chautauqa county.People have to realize that a half of million dollars is a lot of money and this cost would only increase over time.It is time to think of the future not the past.

big picture is keeping the undesirables out of our town,example DUNKIRK,JAMESTOWN If you have rental property,do not rent to anyone that fills out an application,it is a careful process people,bad renters ruin quality of life,make costs go up and eventually destroy your theres two cars in the north end of the county in hanover and silver creek correct.lets see how long it will take them to hang out ay tim hortons

The best part is that the rest of the County residents pick up the tab. One or two Silver Creek cops end up hired by the County - to be paid for by the new revenue. Then that goes away and we are left paying the salaries and benefits until retirement.

This is step one of the loss of a service. They'll contract for a while, realize it's a waste of money, then drop that. End result - no service - things that used to get done won't any more. Watched it happen in other places.

What did you all think would happen? You let a mayor run unapposed, the village turned a deaf ear to taxpayers when we wanted a new works building put up instead of the one they took. We all sat around thinking WOW $.02 saved for evey $1000 in property tax even though all homes will be over valued to make up for it and then some. DonaldTrump - the Bogosian's have done more for the village than most and although they live about 2000 feet outside the village they own probably more property in the village than most and therefore have more say than many. There was no reason to dismantle our police other than hard feelings and bad relations between the have and have nots of this village. Borrello has had a stick up his butt for years about the cops because he is less successfull than his relations. All the issues in this village could/should be solved if certain people would get over their********contest and actually work to the benefit of the village and not to their own agenda.

Did Matt and Karen Bogosian forget where they moved? They don't even reside in the Village of Silver Creek! I believe he built a home in the Town of Hanover to avoid Village Taxes, he DOESN'T even have a vote anyways.

The Silver Creek became the biggest joke in the County, I am glad it is gone! Maybe some real police work will get done now!
