Jacobs Suzie_070_SepiaFrom The Town Supervisor

It’s been a very busy spring at your Town Hall! Our theme for 2019 is “Getting it Done!”- and everyone is focused and working hard to accomplish more for our residents. Here are some updates on our progress and accomplishments.

Teamsters Union 118 Negotiations – We have reached an agreement with the Union and both the employees and Town Council have ratified the contract. It is a fair agreement for our taxpayers and for our Town employees. Special thanks to Councilman Ambroz for partnering with me on the negotiations committee.

Highway Department – We are pleased to announce that together Superintendent Vendel and I secured a State grant in the amount of $50,000 to fund an emergency generator to run the highway department systems during power outages. The equipment being replaced is from the 1960s and no longer in working condition.

Lighting Districts – We are in the process of finalizing the review of all lighting districts in Town.  Once completed, the Town Council will review and adjust as needed. Please feel free to email me with any ideas you might have to share.

Drainage – The drainage committee chaired by Councilman Ruth is available to address any concerns regarding running water and drainage. Please contact Councilman Ruth with your drainage concerns.

LED Lighting – We are replacing old, expensive lighting with modern, cost-saving LED. Much of the investment in this equipment is funded by State grant money. We have completed much of the Town complex and are in process of replacement at the highway department. We are also looking at the street lighting as the next area of savings.

Investment Policy – Working with our Financial Bankers, we have reworked the Town’s Investment Policy to gain a much higher return on Town funds. This new risk-free program will increase our annual returns from $900. yearly to $12,000 annually.

Gananda Parkway – Deputy Supervisor Cody Phillips and I are working with the County Highway Department to review the safety and potential of the Gananda Parkway. We are forming a committee to move forward with this process. Future updates will be provided as work progresses.

Secured Shredding Day – The Town is partnering with Lyons National Bank to bring you a secured shredding day on Saturday, September 21, 2019 more information forthcoming. Save the Date!

Annual Memorial Day Ceremony – The American Legion in Ontario, NY Meyers-Ingraham Memorial Corp Post #428 will be leading our Second Annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 27, 2019 at 3PM, at the Walworth Lions Club Memory Garden with a reception to follow. If you are interested in participating in the ceremony please let me know– we would love to have you!

Attention All Veterans – Please make sure that you take a minute to register with the Wayne County Veterans Service Center. They are here to help with your needs and offer many services; they may be reached at (315) 946-5993.

We have many Town activities during the summer, you will find many listed in the pages of this edition of Town Topics. Please join us for these great family events!

As always, I welcome your questions and feedback! Please feel free to call me at 585.230.2649. It is my honor to serve as your Supervisor and I appreciate the opportunity!
