MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County executive Vince Horrigan is holding three public hearings today on local laws, which were approved by the county legislature in July.
This afternoon Horrigan will hold a hearing at 1 p.m. on a local law involving the number of votes needed to take money from the county’s fund balance after it falls below a certain level, proportionate to the full county budget.
At 1:30 p.m. Horrigan will hold a hearing on increasing salaries for three county offices – the County Clerk, County Sheriff and County Executive – which would go into effect following the next local election for each of those three offices.
And at 2 p.m. he’ll hold a public hearing on an amendment to increase the term length for the county legislature from two to four years. Even if signed by the executive, that amendment must still be approved by a public referendum during this fall’s general election.
All the hearings will take place in the office of the county executive inside the Gerace Office building.
