The 2020 Budget Process has Begun

Posted on July 8, 2019 at 8:57 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

As of July 1, 2019, the Town of Webster has started its budget process for the 2020 budget year. For the rest of this month the Department Heads, myself, the Town Board liaisons to the Departments, and our Director Finance Paul Adams, will meet to review and understand each department’s needs for the 2020 Budget.

Later in July the Town Board, along with the fourteen Department Heads, will come together to discuss every department’s needs and concerns regarding the budget, and collectively come up with ideas to improve and save monies within the budget. On Thursday, August 1, 2019 and Thursday, August 8, 2019, the 2020 Town Budget Workshop will be televised at 4:30 p.m. so that Webster residents can follow along line by line to see and understand where your tax dollars are being spent.

The 2020 Supervisor’s Preliminary Budget will be filed with the Town Clerk by Friday, August 23, 2019. The complete 2020 Town Budget will appear in the official newspaper of the town, the Webster Herald, and will be delivered on September 12th to all residential homes in Webster.

The Town Board will have a Public Hearing on the 2020 Budget on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Board Meeting Room. The Town Board will also have an Open Discussion on the 2020 Town Budget at the October 3rd Town Board Meeting for residents to ask questions about the budget.

The adoption of the final budget is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, October 17, 2019 pending any unforeseen events that may require the Town Board to move that date. The legal deadline for final adoption by the Town Board is December 19, 2019.

We encourage Webster residents to take part in the process of constructing the 2020 Town Budget and welcome your participation at any of the public meetings I have mentioned above.

The Town Board has set a goal of a zero-tax rate increase for 2020 and staying under the imposed New York State 2% Tax Cap. These are our goals and we will have to see how all the numbers add up before we come up with a new 2020 tax rate that meets the needs of Webster residents along with the services our residents have come to expect.

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

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.
