Residents sue to maintain road - City & Region - The Buffalo News: SILVER CREEK – Residents on a stretch of Stewart Avenue in Hanford Bay are going to court to force the Town of Hanover to maintain that section of the road.
Robert Whalen, one of the residents, said the town has maintained the roadway for more than 50 years, and he and 10 other residents are asking that the town continue the practice. Whalen said the group of residents filed a suit against the town, a case that will be heard July1 in State Supreme Court.
Another dispute over who pays for costly road infrastructure maintenance: the local government via property taxes or the HOA via HOA assessments. Either way, the property owners are going to pay since they fund both sources.
