The Batavia Police are hosting their annual Community Night tonight at St. Anthony’s, on Liberty Street. It starts at 5:30 pm and goes until 8 pm.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin wants state Democrats to dump a plan that would result in a 40-hour work week for farm workers.

Residents in the Town of Batavia may experience low water pressure through tomorrow as the town is making repairs and upgrades to the Ellicott Street Water Booster Station. Once the work is completed, the town says water pressure will be restored to normal.
