The Budget Process is On-Going

Posted on July 2, 2018 at 9:55 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

The Town of Webster started the 2019 Budget process on June 1st.  The first phase has been completed which is having all Department Heads submit their preliminary budgets to the Finance Director.

During the month of July the Town Board liaisons will meet with me, the Department Head they represent and the Finance Director to go over what they have submitted. At this point there may be additions or cuts to their preliminary budgets.

On August 9th and August 16th the Town Board will have televised workshops on Cable 1303 and streamed on our cable network with the complete Town Board asking questions of the Department Heads about their respective 2019 preliminary town budgets.

Then the Town Board will meet with the Director of Finance to come up with a 2019 Budget.  This will also take in to account any resident comments heard at the workshops or after, and I will present my Supervisor’s Budget to the Town Clerk on September 21st.

The full budget will be available to all Webster residents in the town-wide edition of the town’s official newspaper, the Webster Herald, on October 11th.  This is where Webster residents can compare the 2018 Budget with the 2019 Budget side by side. 

The adoption of the final budget for 2019 is scheduled for November 1st of this year, but if any unseen matters crop up the legal deadline for adoption is December 20, 2018.

Signs in Webster

Posted on June 11, 2018 at 8:45 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

There is always a question mark on placing signs in the Town of Webster and what is and is not appropriate in putting up signs in the town. We at Town Hall understand that small and large business like to advertise sales and promotions at their place of business, but there are laws in Webster that govern this practice.

In the Town Code of the Town of Webster there is a whole Chapter (Chapter 178) addressing this issue.  The Town Code can be found on the town’s website at ci.webster.ny.us.  The Code addresses this with definitions, general regulations, permits required, application for a permit, and a section on temporary signs.

A temporary sign permit may be granted for a period not to exceed 45 days and a sign permit for temporary signs containing noncommercial messages may be granted for a period not to exceed 90 days, provided that such signs are not attached to fences, trees, utility poles or the like.  These temporary sign permits apply to all political candidates and school board candidates who seek public office. This permit process is in place to make sure candidates remove signs after their election as to not have Webster’s landscape overrun with these hideous signs on every corner including expressway intersections for weeks on end after the election.

Now garage and yard signs do not need a permit, but we request that you remove your sign from every intersection that you posted it on after the event so we can keep Webster’s intersections in some sort of decent looking condition. This would include all balloons, rope, stakes, and duct tape that you put on utility poles and at these intersections. The Town of Webster does not have the staffing power to send out employees to clean up after you in these certain cases. If we all work together on this project it only makes Webster a more enjoyable looking town for residents, visitors, and guests to look at as they drive around Webster.

I thank you for doing your attention and doing your part to help keep Webster a place for everyone to work, live and play. 

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
