Happy New Year
As 2014 has drawn to a close, the Town of Evans has accomplished much.
The Sturgeon Point Nature Trail was completed and dedicated at the end of summer. The project was funded through a New York State Departemnt of Environment grant. This new addition enhances the services provided by our marina also serving as a new destination for recreation within our Town.
The Dog Park is finished and will be dedicated this spring. The generosity of LADS Pet Foods enabled us to construct a facility that has been desired by many residents for some time and, again, without cost to the taxpayer.
Development and investment is beginning to increase. The Woods at Greycliff will begin construction this summer. The second phase of the "Hike-Bike" path will begin this spring as well. Several new businesses have been meeting with the appropriate departments with the hope that this revitalization will add a much needed increase in the tax base to keep taxes at a minimum and provide new service and job opportunities for all citizens.
Each Town Department has been reorganized, making them more efficient, less costly to operate, and more peple and business-friendly. The Town's finances continue to improve with a decrease in unnecessary lawsuits and an aggressive approach to cost savings. These cost savings include: a reduction in cell phone use, as well as the elimination of duplicate lines; solar power, enabling a significant cut in emergey costs; and technology improvements that were accomplished "in house" instated of utilizing outside contractors. All vendor contracts have been restructured, cutting waste or simply eliminating those contracts that wouldn't negotiate savings for our Town.
The Town's Police Department received State funding secured by former State Senator, Mark Grisanti, for the purchase of a police boat that will be moored at the Sturgeon Point Marina. The Marina itself was also the recipent of State dollars to help defer the cost of annual dredging. The Parks Department is currently securing bids for that task added with the possiblilty of an early opening. The Town Board appointed its first ever Senior Citizen Advisory Board. Their task will be to assist the Town's Director of of Seniors by bringing more programs, as well as innovative ideas to enhance our current Senior Center.
I look forward to 2015, as we continue to manage the Town's finances, keeping the momentum of development moving forward and enhancing fiscal stability by simply "Doing the Right Thing."
Best Wishes in 2015,
Keith E. Dash, Supervisor Town of Evans

The Town of Evans is located in southern Erie County, New York, bordering on Lake Erie, Town of Hamburg, Town of Eden and Town of Brant, encompassing 42 square miles with major traffic routes of N.Y.S. Route 5 and Route 20, along with an exit for the New York State Thruway.
The Town of Evans encompasses the Village of Angola with a combined population of approximately 20,000 people.
Our approximate twelve miles of shoreline significantly increases our summer population as people flock to the beachfront to enjoy its rural beauty and public parks.
Supervisor Dash is pleased to announce the Town of Evans participation in the Hometown Hero's Recognition program. The Town has partnered with the VFW Ladies Auxiliary Post #5798 of Angola to honor our military by constructing a photo display, with a short biography of each hero represented, to grace the main hall of the Evans Town Hall Municipal Building.
The Hometown Hero's Recognition program was created to honor and remember Evans residents and their family members (spouse, child, grandchild, and/or sibling) who are currently serving or have previously served our country in the United States Armed Forces.
