The Cuomo administrations highly touted Tier Six pension reform plan is estimated to save Genesee County near 200-million dollars over the next 30 years.
Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy was in Batavia yesterday to talk up the local benefits of the plan.
The reform only affects new state workers, raising their retirement age by one year and requires a greater employee contribution to their pension.
A Batavia man has been given three-months to pay back welfare benefits he now admits, he should never have received.
35-year-old Lee Heckman of Fairmount Avenue admitted he was working as a scrap recycler when he collected almost $2,000 in benefits and food stamps.
An Erie County man has been ticketed in connection with a fatal accident last weekend near Warsaw.

Pasieka then crashed into another car, killing the driver, 62-year-old Patrick Henn of North Tonawanda.
In Livingston County, Dansville Schools are closed today.
There is a boil water advisory in effect for the village.
