Senate Resolution No. 542

BY: Senator GALLIVAN

COMMEMORATING the 125th Anniversary of the Village
of Depew

WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to honor and
commemorate the distinguished histories of the communities which
comprise the noble body of this great Empire State; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Village of Depew, in Erie
County, New York; and

WHEREAS, This historic Village, incorporated on July 23, 1894, as a
railroad town, is one of the largest villages in western New York,
extending partly into both the towns of Lancaster and Cheektowaga; Depew
is the proud home to over 15,000 residents as well as many businesses
both small and large; and

WHEREAS, The village is named in honor of Chauncey M. Depew (1892),
President of the New York Central Railroad, who later went on to become
a United States Senator (1899-1911); and

WHEREAS, In 1892, the Depew Improvement Company hired the Boston
firm of Olmsted, Olmsted & Eliot to design a whole Village around a
manufacturing theme, rather than just a residential area; Chauncey M.
Depew purchased 100 acres in 1894, which became known as "the place
where Depew will build"; and

WHEREAS, Ground broke for The New York Central Locomotive Works
shops in May of 1892, opening the following year with 40 employees, and
by 1895, the business employed 640 men; in that same year, Gould Coupler
Company constructed a plant on a 60-acre plot, producing steel castings
for railroad equipment; and

WHEREAS, By 1893, the first post office in Depew was established,
and the water works building was constructed on the north side of Sawyer
Avenue at Penora Street, holding the original offices of the Depew
Improvement Company; in 1894, the building housed a temporary classroom
for the school system and meeting rooms for various organizations; and

WHEREAS, Under new management in 1896, the Depew Improvement Company
constructed a brick structure at the northeast corner of Transit and
Ellicott Road to serve as a bank, several offices, and a community
center; and

WHEREAS, In 1899, the Gould Storage Battery Company was formed,
producing batteries for use in the railroad industry; when World War II
began, production turned to manufacturing submarine batteries; and

WHEREAS, In 1910, Buffalo Batt and Felt Corporation Depew Plant
opened as a rag shop, and later, cotton based products for packing were
manufactured; the plant is now the oldest continuous employer in the
village; and


WHEREAS, One of the most magnificent buildings ever erected in the
Village of Depew, The Depew Inn, was one of the showpieces of western
New York and considered the best suburban hostelry in this part of the
state at the time it was built; and

WHEREAS, Remaining fruitful over the ebb and flow of decades of
growth and change, the Village of Depew continues its commitment to
enhancing the quality of life of its citizens, ensuring a positive
business, institutional and educational climate, and providing all
essential services; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Village of Depew, recognizing
the significance of the role it continues to play in the life of the
community of the State of New York; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Jesse Nikonowicz, Mayor, Village of Depew.

BY: Senator JACOBS

COMMENDING Firefighter Bill Langenfelder upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 50 years of dedicated service to Brighton
Volunteer Fire Company No. 5 in the Town of
Tonawanda, New York

WHEREAS, Citizens across our State and Nation are inspired by and
indebted to our noble volunteer firefighters who exhibit courage and
bravery every day in the course of their duties; and

WHEREAS, Volunteer firefighters exemplify the power of human
compassion and the strength of the American spirit through actions of
the most heroic magnitude; their sacrifices and their selfless
dedication merit tribute and recognition by all citizens of this great
country; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Firefighter Bill Langenfelder upon the occasion of his designation for
special recognition after 50 years of dedicated service to the Brighton
Volunteer Fire Company No. 5, celebrated at its Annual Awards Ceremony
on Saturday, January 26, 2019, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Cheektowaga,
New York; and

WHEREAS, Firefighters unwaveringly serve our great State with pride,
valor, and integrity; these respected volunteers are often the first to
respond to an emergency, whether the emergency is a fire, transportation
accident, natural disaster, act of terrorism, medical crisis, or spill
of hazardous materials; and

WHEREAS, It takes a special dedication, a strong desire to help
others and a tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with
family and friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need;
Bill Langenfelder is such a firefighter; throughout 50 years of devoted
service, this volunteer heroically performed, above and beyond the call
of duty, those responsibilities which define the task of fire
protection; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter Bill Langenfelder upon the occasion of his
