Memorial Day

Posted on May 20, 2019 at 10:50 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

Monday, May 27th is Memorial Day and as is our tradition in Webster, there will be a parade to celebrate our Veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. The parade will line up at 9:00 a.m. at the Spry Middle School and will start at 9:30 am.

The parade travels down South Avenue to Main Street and ends at the Webster Rural Cemetery. At the cemetery there is a service THAT will take place to honor our fallen heroes. Some have asked whether the Town Board will be marching in the parade and that answer is no. The Town Board believes that this is a solemn day to be set aside to remember our Veterans and not a day for politics.

Please come out on Monday, May 27th for the parade and join the veteran groups, boy scouts, and girl scouts to honor our veterans.

Please note that the Webster Town Hall building will be closed on Monday, May 27th, 2019 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Town Hall will reopen for regular business hours on Tuesday, May 28th at 8:30 a.m.

Summer Celebration

The Town of Webster’s annual summer party at the Webster Recreation Building is on Saturday, June 22nd at 4:00 p.m. The fun begins with food trucks, games and inflatables for all to enjoy.  Then from 5:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. there will be music to entertain everyone, followed by the finale of the evening which is the best fireworks you have ever seen!

So, make sure to put this date on your calendar, and plan on bringing your family to enjoy an evening of food, fun and friends at the Webster Recreation Center!

Sand Bags are available at the Highway Department

Posted on May 6, 2019 at 9:33 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

For residents living along the Ontario Lake shore and along Irondequoit Bay, the Webster Highway Department has been making up sand bags for the past few weeks.

If you only need a small amount of sand bags, you can come to the Highway Department, located on Picture Parkway, and the highway crew will put some in your vehicle. If you need more than your vehicle can hold, they will deliver a pallet to you (50 sand bags) after you sign a release form at the Highway office. For more information, please contact the Highway Department at (585) 872-1443.

I continue to be in touch with the Monroe County Executive, Cheryl Dinolfo, and have fielded calls from Governor Cuomo’s office on the needs of Webster residents regarding the rising water levels on Lake Ontario. If you need something, please do not hesitate to call my office at (585) 872-7068, and we will see what we can do from the resources we have.

Thank You

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 145 residents that took the time to go to the Wastewater Treatment Plant on Saturday, April 27th to drop off 331 pounds of outdated and/or expired medications. This program helps us to properly dispose of medications and not have them in a landfill or make their way in to Lake Ontario.

I would be remiss if I did not thank our employees at the Wastewater Treatment Plant and Webster Police Department for coordinating and collecting the medications. I would also like to thank the WHEN (Webster Health and Education Network) and the Webster PTSA for their help in promoting this event.  

New Business Opening

Please welcome Ollie’s to Webster and wish them good luck on their Grand Opening this Wednesday, May 8th! Stop by and check them out!

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

Economic Development in Webster

Posted on April 29, 2019 at 2:36 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

This past Thursday the Webster Economic Development Alliance (WEDA) hosted a breakfast for interested parties who have shown interest in development in the commercial and industrial zones here in Webster. This also included businesses interested in the newly created Opportunity Zones here in Webster by the Federal government in mid-2018.

Congressman Joseph Morelle was in attendance talking about issues on the national level, and the Greater Rochester Enterprise (GRE) explained how they are encouraging development in Monroe County with many a new small company openings.

GRE representatives explained how Monroe County has an unusually large higher-education sector and an abundant technically sophisticated and reliable workforce here in Rochester and the surrounding areas. This is a huge plus when outside companies are looking to relocate to Monroe County.

We had conversations about the Opportunity Zones here within the Xerox campus, and what the Town of Webster can do to take advantage of this opportunity into the future. Matt Chatfield, Executive Director of WEDA, spoke on behalf of the Webster Alliance on the plentiful business opportunities within our community at this time. He spoke on the Chilled Water District, the Eastside Water Treatment Plant, 115kv power and high-pressure natural gas in our industrial zone, and the many opportunities for business at some of the open buildings at Xerox.

The WDEA is made up of members from the Town of Webster, the Village of Webster, the Webster Central School District, the Webster Chamber of Commerce, and the Business Improvement District. This group meets monthly to organize and discuss business opportunities in the community, along with seeking grant monies available to encourage development in Webster.

Many meetings lately have been spent meeting with Xerox representatives on the future of Xerox, and we have had good discussions about the future of the buildings on the campus as the primary discussions. Unfortunately, I cannot give out specifics at this time, but the WEDA feels confident that anything that does happen at Xerox in the future can be off-set by new and small businesses that want to invest in Webster, and fill the buildings on the campus with new up-and-coming ventures.

Economic Development is not dead in Webster; it is still progressing at a reasonable rate of progress while taking in new and old business opporunities and expanding as opportunities exist.

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
