Doktor first became involved serving as a volunteer on several task-specific focus groups, now known as the Wheatfield Enhancement Volunteers (WEV). The WEVs are a dedicated group of residents who are proud to live in the Town of Wheatfield. They take on initiatives to make our fantastic community even better. Our current focus is directed at improvements along Niagara Falls Boulevard including safety, beautification, and attracting desirable commerce. Curt serves as Chairman and Town Board Liaison on the Team.
Doktor has worked diligently to control expenses, make responsible investments, and promote community involvement. In his first term, he led the effort to convert over 400 streetlights to efficient LEDs. This effort was completed in 2020 and reduces our electricity expense burden by thousands of dollars annually.
