BATAVIA N.Y. (WIVB) – Work is complete on a new war memorial monument in Genesee county.

Saturday the war memorial committee hosted a dedication ceremony for the project on Bank Street.

The group has spent the last few years raising money and searching for a location for the monument.  The memorial had to be moved because of a construction and renovation project at its former site. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
