    If 56,000 parcels were not enough, these employees (along with the others assigned to that office), will have to devote time to a separate municipality and do not believe the compensation is adequate to lose staff to tasks outside of the Town. They do more than just assessments and already perform these tasks for the Village of Williamsville. I wonder how the Town’s of Tonawanda and Grand Island feel about this Town taking over this City under cutting them by $8,000.
