MAYVILLE – The Memorial Day holiday has arrived, and with it comes the unofficial start of the summer season in Chautauqua County.
With the warmer weather, increase in outdoor activity, and many residents and visitors out of work or school, Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan will be spending time over the next three months reminding the public to stay safe.
During Wednesday Night’s Chautauqua County Legislature Meeting, the county executive announced that starting May 30, he’ll be kicking off a new initiative called “100 Days of Summer Safety.”
“Every year in this beautiful county we suffer tragic loss, whether it’s drowning or accidents happening right in the middle of the best time off,” Horrigan said. “This year we’re hopeful that an effective summer safety campaign across the county, reminding families, workers, and celebrants that drinking and driving is deadly and that we can all have a wonderful summer, but safety always matters.”
Horrigan said that he’ll be using his weekly Monday Morning Memo message to continue to remind residents about safety and also offer tips and information on what they should do or know to ensure a safe and happy summer season.
