OLEAN, NY - William J. Aiello, Mayor of the City of Olean, will honor LaDorna C. Fox with a Key to the City at the Regular Meeting of the Olean Common Council on Feb. 28 at 6:35 p.m. in the Council Chambers.

“LaDorna Fox has served the community since 1992 when she was elected to the Olean Common Council as Alderman for the former Ward 10,” Mayor Aiello said. “Her ward was eliminated when the new City Charter took effect on January 1, 1994. Shortly thereafter she was appointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). She was elected Chairperson of the ZBA in 2002.”

“During her tenure she made many important decisions for our residents; her wealth of knowledge and experience were vital as the ZBA deliberated over many challenging issues,” Mayor Aiello added.

“LaDorna has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to our community and not only during her 25 years of service to the City. In addition, she has taught art to our residents, she has delivered Meals on Wheels, and she has volunteered at the Olean YMCA. Residents such as LaDorna make Olean a great place to live and it is fitting to honor her with a key to the City,” Mayor Aiello said.
