Depew residents to decide on possible village dissolution

DEPEW, N.Y. (WIVB) — In Depew, voters will get to decide whether to keep or dissolve the village.

Monday night, the Village board set a date of January 17 for a public referendum on dissolving the village government.

Dissolution supporters say the cost of service is rising faster than the tax base.

If the referendum passes, the village would have to work on a dissolution plan with the towns of Lancaster and Cheektowaga within the following six months. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
