Sewer and Water Line Insurance could save on costly repairs

Homeowners are responsible for repairs of water and sewer lines running from their homes out to the street connections. Older homes and homes with older trees may be at risk of these lines failing, which can result in costly repairs. Service Line Insurance is available from countless insurance carriers to cover these repairs and the monthly premium costs are generally quite modest. Persons with trusted insurance agents or brokers should contact those persons to inquire about this, or check with a current carrier providing general homeowner's coverage. Otherwise, options to purchase these policies can be found online. When researching and making inquiries, comparisons should be made as far as premium costs, what is covered (and what is not), deductible amounts and limits of coverage.

Will Miller and his team of helpers constructed four custom picnic tables, specially designed with extended tabletops to accommodate persons with disabilities. They have been donated to the Village and will be placed throughout Hamlin Park. See more pictures here.

Will Miller is a senior at East Aurora High School and has been in scouting since joining Pack 514 as a Cub Scout. From there, Will joined Boy Scout Troop 513. Will is grateful for the support of his fellow troop members and leaders. Will credits his may helpers for his project - troop members and their fathers, saying the group effort was made possible by these great people who were simply "amazing." Will was able to raise the money for his Eagle Scout project and thanks the wonderful people of East Aurora for donating cans and bottles.

The Village extends our sincerest thanks to Will and all involved with his Eagle Scout project for making and donating these beautiful tables that are extra exceptional, proving accommodations for special persons!

Buckle Up New York

The East Aurora-Town of Aurora Police Department is participating in the two-week,statewide, seat belt enforcement initiative, Buckle Up New York, May 24-June 6, 2021, as part of the New York Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee’s “Click It…Or Ticket” campaign. Patrol Officers will perform traffic stops in the village and town to enforce seatbelt laws. This zero-tolerance enforcement effort aims to increase seat belt use, which helps reduce fatalities and injuries in motor vehicle crashes.According to the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, “Regardless of a 93 percent seat belt compliance rate, on average more than a third of motor vehicle occupants killed in crashes each year are unrestrained.” New York State's seatbelt law is a primary law, which means a police officer may stop vehicles solely because the drivers or passengers are not wearing seatbelts.For additional information, contact: East Aurora-Town of Aurora Police Department,(716) 652-1111
