The third annual Webster Waterfront Arts Festival will take place this year on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th at North Ponds Park. This has been an outstanding event the last two years and we expect it to be as successful this year!

Traffic, Traffic, Traffic

Posted on June 12, 2017 at 10:26 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

I witnessed and sat in a long line of cars on Saturday, June 3rd as traffic was backed up on Ridge Road from Schroeder High School back to Hatch Road.  I can honestly tell you that this is going to get worse before it gets better, but it will get better in the future.

The weekend of Father’s Day June 17th and 18th) is Webster Soccer’s huge soccer tournament using most of the open playing fields here in Webster.  The traffic that weekend will be very heavy as many people come from the east coast states to participate in this tournament. If you can avoid Ridge Road that weekend I would recommend it to save you from traffic frustration.

Shortly thereafter New York State will start construction on the intersections of Hard Road and Five Mile Line Road to improve traffic through these intersections. They will also be moving telephone poles, replacing and repairing drainage catch basins, installing sidewalks in some areas, and putting in handicap assessable walk ways to these sidewalks.

The State DOT will also be closing Hard Road from the Hegadorn’s grocery driveway on Hard Road north for three weeks to level the sight distance at Hard Road.  This will take place after the July 4th holiday and I am positive that this will bottleneck traffic during this time frame.

During the summer New York State crews will be working on Five Mile Line Road to widen the road at the intersection to add right hand turn lanes and left hand turn signals to this intersection and the Hard Road intersection. With these improvements, New York State sees traffic moving faster through these intersections and not backing up because of right land and left hand turns that stop and back up traffic today.

All of this construction is to take place this summer right up to winter, will restart in the spring of 2018, and should be completed in June of 2018. I know that this is a long time, delays are going to happen, and traffic will continue to back up. However, it will be better after June of 2018 so Webster residents are going to have to endure waiting in construction delays or better yet avoid Ridge Road when you can.

As always, if you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us

RG&E at June 14th Electronic Town Meeting

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 8:48 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

On Wednesday, June 14th at 7:30 p.m. representatives from RG&E will be my guests on my monthly Electronic Town Meeting.  They will be discussing various issues pertaining to the Webster area, and will be available to answer questions about power outages here in Webster and the wind storm that we had this year.

You will be able to call in with your questions and I and the moderator Barry Howard, along with RG&E representatives will try to answer all of your questions about town government and the recent power outages here in Webster.

Just the Facts

There are 30,300 registered voters in the Town of Webster, not counting Penfield.  However, only just over 2,800 showed up at the recent Webster Central School District budget vote.

After spending time this past Monday celebrating the heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us to have this opportunity to vote, this poor showing does not speak well of the people of Webster.  We should at least make the effort to vote, either for or against, for something that will impact our lives and not be so non-committal as to think it does not matter in your life because in the long run it really does.

Summer Celebration is coming on Saturday, June 24th

The fun and good times start at 4:00 p.m. with food trucks, games and inflatable’s with two bands playing throughout the night. Stateline will be playing from 5:30 p.m.–7:15 p.m., and Brass Taxi will play from 7:45 p.m.– 9:45 p.m. with a giant fireworks display taking place at 9:45 p.m.

Free parking and transportation from the Xerox parking lot across from the Webster Recreation Building is provided. There are usually around 5,000 to 6,000 Webster residents gathering here on this night enjoying entertainment and being with friends and neighbors for great conversations and a good time.

Drug Collection Unit at Town Hall is CLOSED

The CVS Drug Collection unit at the Webster Town Hall will NOT be available until the Town Hall renovations are complete.  We have confirmed with the following institutions that a drug collection unit is available to the public for dropping off unwanted, unused or expired pharmaceuticals:

  • Walgreens, Irondequoit (corner of Ridge Rd. and Culver Rd.), 2100 East Ridge Road, BUT ONLY during pharmacy hours which are: 8 a.m. -10 p.m. (M-F), 9 a.m.-6 p.m. (Sat.) and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (Sun)
  • Irondequoit Police Department, Public Safety Building, 1300 Titus Avenue, Irondequoit, NY 14617
  • Fairport Police Department, 31 South Main Street, Fairport, NY 14450
  • East Rochester Police Department, 317 Main Street, East Rochester, NY 14445

We will keep everyone informed as to when our drop box will reopen, and when the next Pharmaceutical Waste pickup is scheduled later this year.

As always, if you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us
