.It never ceases to amaze me how people continue to blame Satish Mohan for problems that surfaced from the prior administration and from the poor record keeping and follow-up in our financial offices. Mohan might have some things to learn in his short term in office, but it's awfully difficult to operate with a board whose only goal is to try to make him look bad and keep nipping at his heels. Now, Dan Ward is barking up the wrong tree over the deputy supervisor appointment.

.Amherst Supervisor Satish Mohan's continued and constant missteps and lack of preparedness, ability and leadership are just too much; we are two years into the supervisor's tenure.

.I have lived in south Amherst for more than 20 years and have put out only a 30-gallon plastic bag of garbage and recycling bin late Tuesday for Wednesday pickup. I will comply with the soon-to-be issued 95-gallon totes to all residences; however, why not have those who wish a smaller 65-gallon tote call in prior to delivery of the larger ones, thereby cutting down on double handling and returning used totes?

.I totally agree that Mary Lowther needs to be voted out of office. Let's not forget that she is the person who wanted to have one of our beautiful parks replaced with a dog park just two years ago with only $10,000 in revenue to do it.

.We are appalled how few complaints have been made to Bee Heard or the Williamsville Village Hall about the absence of storm debris pickup. The schedule for this, according to village authorities, was to be the second and fourth Monday of each month. One of the pretty streets in the village, South Cayuga, is marred by the presence of tree limbs thrown by homeowners at the curb that have been there for a month. More citizens calling village hall might mean action in removing the debris.
