Transparency and Information

Posted on September 10, 2018 at 7:42 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

The Town of Webster has always, and will continue, to use all means necessary to keep the Webster residents informed about all relevant activities happening in our town.

Each Town Board meeting, Planning Board meeting, and Zoning Board of Appeals meeting are broadcast live on cable station 1303 on Tuesday or Thursday nights. On the second Wednesday of each month I have a Supervisor’s dialogue, or what we call our Electronic Town Meeting, with one of the fourteen Webster Departments to keep Webster residents informed about what is on-going in their departments, at Town Hall, etc. 

We publish all meeting notices in the official newspaper of the tow, The Webster Herald, before each meeting and all legal notices can be found in that publication as well.  We have a Town of Webster web site at www.ci.webster.ny.us that has information about the Town of Webster, phone numbers to all the departments, the Town Code, past videos of the Town Board meetings and a new option that was added earlier this year.

This new feature is so that you can get notifications of Town Board, Planning Board, and Zoning board meetings three to four days before the event if you sign up on the town’s web site. All you have to do is:

  • Visit: ci.webster.ny.us
  • Sign up under the Notify Me tab
  • Select Board Meeting Agendas
  • Choose email or text alerts

Three times a year my office puts out the Webster Town Times delivered to each residential home in Webster.  This publication is full of varied information about all departments in the town. We try to give residents the up-to-date information as we have it from Monroe County and New York State offices to pass along to you.

The Town of Webster also has a FaceBook page which also updates with meaning information daily. If you have not seen it you need to check it out and give us your likes and shares when possible.

The Town of Webster is determined to provide you with all of the information that we gather during our daily work. We certainly will not and do not withhold information from our residents on any topics. I believe that if you are not an informed Webster resident you are not looking to be informed because the Town of Webster is doing everything we can to get the true information out to everyone.

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

2018 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Scheduled

Posted on August 20, 2018 at 9:14 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services (DES), the Town of Webster and the Town of Penfield has joined forces to hold an appointment-only Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection on Saturday, September 15, 2018.  This collection will take place at the Penfield Department of Public Works, 1607 Jackson Road, from 7:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Most HHW (paint, flammables and other chemicals from home-use) is safe when used and stored properly. When they become unwanted and are disposed of improperly, these household wastes can become environmental hazards.

To ensure safety and reduce waiting times, appointments are required at all HHW collections.  Appointments for this HHW collection will be accepted until September 14th. To schedule an appointment, Webster residents should call 872-1443 (Monday thru Thursday, 7:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.); Penfield residents can call 340-8710, or go on-line to http://www.monroecounty.gov/hhw to schedule your appointment. This Household Hazardous Waste collection is open to all Monroe County residents. Waste from businesses will not be accepted.

Don’t be Afraid to Ask

Social media is a good tool to find out information, but only if the correct information is put out there to begin with.  I read a lot of misinformation on many different social media sites and it just makes me sad that people would rather believe the negative comments than find out the truth of what is happening in our community. 

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 presentation by Mr. Rob Levine, member of the Rochester Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, has been scheduled for Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. in the Town Board Room. All Webster residents are encouraged to attend and learn about reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

This group is a non-profit, non-partisan, organization focused on a market based, revenue neutral solution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Mr. Levine has worked with the City of Rochester, Town of Penfield, Town of Pittsford, Town of Brighton, Town of Henrietta and the Town of Irondequoit, and will be addressing the Webster Town Board seeking our approval to move forward with a town resolution.

The Webster Town Board is looking forward to his presentation and encourages other Webster residents to attend.

Congratulations!

On behalf of the Webster Town Board, I extend congratulations to Officer Michael Nicossia!  Officer Nicossia officially graduated from the Monroe County Police Academy on Friday, and is now a full-time Webster Police Officer. After nine months of schooling and three months of field training, Officer Nicossia will now be working a full-time officer and taking his place on one of the shifts within the Webster Police Department. Again, congratulations Officer Nicossia!   

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
