highway.jpgThe Highway Department maintains 62 miles of town roads.  Generally roads are repaired and paved in the spring and summer seasons. In the winter the Highway Department plows and salts all town roads and approximately 70 miles of Erie County roads per contract with the county.  CLICK HERE for a list of all town roads, and CLICK HERE for a list of county roads that we are contracted to plow.

In the spring, summer and fall, our highway crews are out mowing roadsides, trimming and cutting down dead trees, cleaning out our ditches, installing new culvert pipe when needed, chipping branches and picking up chunk wood around town. The department does not pick up brush from land clearing and tree work done by private contractors. Four times per year crews pick up junk tires and car batteries and we have one electronics recycling pick up for residents (outside of the village) in the fall. Leaf pick up begins after Columbus Day. For more information on garbage and recycling see below.

In May 2020 the Town of Aurora entered into a contract with the Town of Orchard Park to provide mulch and compost to Town of Aurora residents at the same rate as Orchard Park residents. The compost address is located at 6909 Milestrip Road in Orchard Park. They are open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and also 8 a.m.-12 p.m.on Saturdays during summer months. Rates are $15 a yard for mulch and $23 a yard for compost, and employees are available to load you up! They will only accept checks made out to the Town of Orchard Park, and proof of residency is required.

Sewer districts in the Town of Aurora are handled by the Erie County Sewer Authority. Their phone number is 823-8188. Most water districts are managed through an agreement with the county. The Erie County Water Authority can be reached at 849-8455. The town still maintains a small water district which includes the following roads: South Herrick, Heiler Dr., Hickory Lane, Mary Janes Lane and Mitchell Road.
