Jacobs Reminds Snowmobilers to Register their Sleds in Erie County

Jacobs Reminds Snowmobilers to Register their Sleds in Erie County

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs wants to remind snowmobilers to register their sleds “locally” and avoid the registration rush by doing so at any of the Erie County Auto Bureaus. For information and complete instructions on how to register your snowmobiles go to www.erie.gov/registrations.

“Snow has already begun to fly and we do not want any snowmobiler to be delayed in being properly registered”, said Jacobs. “Our winters are more fun on a snowmobile and we want riders ready to enjoy the season.”

Buffalo Schools Supt. Warns of Possible Layoffs

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo's new superintendent of schools warned of possible layoffs if an agreement isn't in place soon regarding teacher evaluations.

Dr. Pamela Brown said, after this coming Friday, the district will have already missed out on around $26 million in funds because it does not have an Annual Professional Performance Review agreement in place with the Buffalo Teachers Federation (BTF).

If an agreement isn't reached by mid-January, the district will miss out on another $33 million.

"This is a community issue," Dr. Brown said at Wednesday night's school board meeting. "This affects so many people."

An APPR agreement is required for the district to receive certain funding from the state and federal governments.

For the first time Wednesday, Dr. Brown warned of layoffs, describing that as a worst-case scenario.
