More residential burglaries reported in the City of Batavia.
Two more homes were entered over the last weekend of September, bringing total home burglaries in the city to 6 last month alone.
One of the newly-reported break-ins was on East Avenue. 
Thieves stole about 150-dollars cash from a purse inside the home.
The other break-in was on Trumbull Parkway, and the suspect was chased from the home before any property could be taken.
Batavia Police continue to review evidence in the cases. No arrests have been made.

From WBTA’s Eye on Government:
The City of Batavia will hold a special public meeting tonight, for a presentation by the planning firm “CZB.”
CZB was hired this summer by City Hall to study the quality of life in Batavia. Their presentation tonight includes several months of studies and interviews with the local population.
According to City Manager Jason Molino, the City hopes to gain insight on neighborhood revitalization, city growth, and business opportunities.
That presentation begins at 7 o’clock tonight in the City Hall Board Room. The public is welcome to attend.
