Mayor’s Office
Recently, I had the honor of attending the Annual State of the Town hosted by the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce. Town Supervisor Diane Benczkowski spoke at length about the businesses moving into the Town and the partnerships with our local and state officials. Similar to Sloan, Cheektowaga is under Order on Consent by the DEC to complete mandatory repairs to its sanitary sewer system. The Village and the Town are working collaboratively for the upcoming Request for Proposals of Public Works Equipment and Operators, Tree Services, Concrete restoration, Manhole rehabilitation and more. In 2022, residents on Celina Street will see storm grade drainage upgrades to correct elevation issues, the repair of drain inlets and the installation of curbs with the goal of directing the flow of storm water and alleviating basement flooding and street ponding. After the work is complete, the street will be milled and paved in late fall. The work will be funded through both Community Development Block Grant and the use of ARPA (American Recovery Plan Act) monies. Mann Street will be completed in the last Phase of this project, scheduled for 2023. Throughout the pandemic, our Board meetings have been broadcast on the Sloan Facebook page. With the easing of restrictions, we will return to in-person meetings when Governor Hochul lifts the mandate. The Village has hosted two drive-through distributions, providing over 700 at-home test kits and 8,000 KN95 masks. Future distributions will be held as supplies are received from NYS. See you around the Village!!
