NEW Flag Collection Box at Town Hall

It has been some time in coming, but we finally have a place to accept worn flags for proper disposal. From our initial post on the Town’s social media page, as of September 6th we collected 49 flags to be properly disposed of!

This past Thursday, the Town Times made its way to resident’s homes with an article on the front page about our flag collection box and how this project came to fruition. As of Friday, September 13th at 1:30 p.m., the box was overflowing! In less than a 24-hour period, we collected 54 worn flags for proper disposal!

The flag collection box is open and ready to accept your worn flags. Please bring them to the Webster Town Hall, Monday – Friday during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Once again, on behalf of the residents of the Town of Webster, my sincere thanks to all that helped to make this project a success for our community.

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

This Household Hazardous Waste collection is open to all Monroe County residents. Waste from businesses will not be accepted.

Up to 30 gallons of the following materials will be accepted per appointment at no charge:

  • Oil-based & Latex Paint (for 1/3-gallon or less of latex paint: discard lid, add kitty litter, let dry, place can in trash)
  • Wood Stain & Preservatives
  • Automotive Fluids (antifreeze; brake, power steering and transmission fluids)
  • Pesticides & Fertilizers

If residents are unable to take advantage of this one day HHW collection, the County offers other collections throughout the year. For more information, or for business waste disposal options, call DES at 753-7600 (option 3), or go on-line at www.monroecounty.gov/hhw

School’s Open … Driving Safely in School Zones is a Must

Posted on September 3, 2019 at 9:15 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

Webster Schools will open on Thursday, September 5th and we need to watch our speeds – especially in school zones around town.

The Webster Police Department has put extra attention in areas around school zones to remind motorists to slow down in these lower speed zones when school is in session. Please be aware of the flashing bus lights and stopped school buses since we are all out of practice since school closed in June.

With the opening of the schools, our two Webster Police School Resource Officers will also be returning to the schools. Officer Herrle and Officer Johnson will resume their duties inside the schools mentoring students in any way they can help. We are again thankful to the Webster Central school District for this partnership which helps the community to make Webster a better place to live and go to school.

Just a reminder that there are new start times for students this year and some students might be out to the bus stops a little earlier. Please make sure that you are mindful of your surroundings in your early morning commute.

The Town Board is aware that many residents are concerned and upset with speeding in their subdivisions. All summer long the Webster Police Department has been giving special attention to this issue (and writing many tickets!) all over town, but they cannot be everywhere. We all MUST take it upon themselves to follow the posted speed limits in town, and especially in the subdivisions where children’s safety is a major concern. 

Let’s make this a great, fun, and safe school year for students, teachers, and bus drivers.
