Thank You Town Employees

Posted on January 23, 2018 at 8:58 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

It all started with the new Federal tax change and the need for many Webster residents to pay their Town and County taxes in 2017 before they were due in 2018.  The Town Clerks Office has handled over 1,600 payments, in house and through the mail, before the beginning of 2018. Even today they are still issuing receipts to Webster residents who mailed their bill to Town Hall. Your continued patience is appreciated as they are working as fast as they can to send those back out to you as well as waiting on customers paying taxes in 2018.

The Town of Webster Highway Department has been plowing snow on a couple of the holidays this year which did not allow them the opportunity to spend that time with their families as the snow fell on Christmas and New Year’s Day. They made sure the roads were safe so people coming to and from our community could do so safely. 

Please remember that in snowy weather conditions it takes over eight hours for the 27 pieces of equipment to do a complete loop of all the main roads, and the sub-divisions, before they restart the process all over again. So if you where one of the roads done first, it is going to take seven hours before your sub-division will get plowed for a second time. There are also other variables taken in to consideration like where the snow is falling, along Lake Ontario or more inland, etc.  Once again, your continued patience is appreciated as they are trying to get the roads plowed as fast as possible. 

The Webster Police Department continues to protect and serve the Webster community 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year during any weather condition.  Even with the ever changing weather conditions, our officers are still receiving calls for speed enforcement.  

Residents throughout the town are speeding and it seems like I hear about a different street each week. The police are increasing enforcement in these areas but they cannot be everywhere at every moment.  Please obey the posted speed limits in town and drive as if your child was playing on street you are traveling.

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

A New Year is Upon Us

Posted on January 8, 2018 at 8:55 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

Before the New Year even arrived the Webster Town Hall was abuzz with over 1,100 Webster residents paying their property taxes in advance. The lines moved quickly and Town staff did an exceptional job of helping residents with getting their proper property tax bill and directing them to the right line in which to pay.

I wish to extend a big thank you to the employees in the Tax Department for their outstanding work that day and for staying positive and professional in a very stressful situation.

A new feature at Town Hall since the renovations is a drop box in the vestibule as you enter the front door (Ridge Road entrance) of the Town Hall.  In the vestibule here you are able to drop off your tax payments after hours and they will be credited on the next business day.

We have already had our first meeting of the year on the $1.8 million sidewalk project that will take place from Five Mile Line Road to Holt Road.  Design approval should be complete sometime in July 2018 and we then shall have a public information meeting for Webster residents to attend and voice their thoughts on shortly thereafter. We are projecting sidewalks on both sides of the street where that is possible, new street lighting, and also working with RTS on bus stop placements.

This is an exciting project for Webster as it will provide a loop from Five Mile Line Road to the Village, down the bike path, to North Ponds Park to the Hojack Line down to Lake Ontario and then back. We are anxiously waiting for competition of this project sometime in 2019.

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
