Town Supervisor

Jacobs Suzie_070_SepiaFrom The Town Supervisor

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season filled with family and friends! As we enter the new year, I wanted to update you on the activity here at your town hall. We had a highly successful year and look forward to building on that record.

I was honored to become the third Town Supervisor in New York State to receive the Certified Town Official certification from the NYS Association of Towns. The training behind this award was extensive and has proven very useful in managing our Town issues. Here are the subject areas covered: Assessor/RPT Issues; Attorney/Legal Issues; Board Member; Clerk; Code Enforcement; Justice/Courts; Planning and Zoning; Superintendent of Highways; Supervisor; Tax Collector/Receiver of Taxes and much more. Each and every course has broadened my understanding of every department in our municipality.

As I look back over last year, we accomplished many of our goals and have much more in the pipeline. Here are a few updates:

Town Drainage- We have partnered with Wayne County Water and Soil to better coordinate with both County resources and neighboring towns. This partnership will provide increased opportunity to participate in studies and apply for grant money. This approach will allow our efforts to be more systematic and encourage long term solutions rather than a patchwork of efforts.

Unsafe Zombie Homes- We put a special focus on zombie properties in our community and have made major progress in addressing these units. Three unsafe structures have been torn down and I know one has been totally rehabilitated and is now occupied. Our team is now focused on others and results are expected soon.

Sewer Plant- Our sewer plant is challenged by a quickly changing regulatory environment. Our Sewer Superintendent has done a great job keeping the plant in compliance, but the requirements being imposed by State and Federal regulators would cost in the $8 – 12 million range in the near future and much more after that. After careful review and extensive discussions with the Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority, we have been able to join a project building a new plant that involves several other municipalities. The project is also receiving grant money to help offset the cost to our community. By partnering with others, we will share the costs of future extensive upgrades that will be required by State and Federal mandates moving forward. Additionally, this will create opportunity for current and future businesses in our Town. Joining the regional sewer project will cost our users far less that going our own way.

While this is only a small sample of our accomplishments, I continue to work tirelessly to make sure our community is a great place to raise your family.

It is my honor to be your Town Supervisor and I am always here to listen to your concerns. Please feel free to call me at 315.986.1400 x1 if I can be of service.

Warmest Regards,

Susie C. Jacobs, MMC
