HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) - The Hamburg Town Board voted to approve the town budget Friday morning, which did not include the controversial $15,000 stipend for Town Supervisor Steve Walters.

The 3-2 approval did, however, include a stipend of $7,500 for the town supervisor, who says he has earned it for absorbing the duties of budget director after eliminating that position.

The budget held the line on taxes and eliminated a 3 percent raise for elected officials.
