The Project Committee will be there along with representatives of Bayer Landscape Architecture, PLLC, the company the town has hired to help us through this long process. The committee will be able to show what designs they have come up with so far, and answer any questions Webster residents might have.

Rochester Transit Authority Public Meeting

The Town of Webster and Rochester Transit Authority have scheduled a Public Informational Meeting for Monday, February 4, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the Town Board Meeting Room, Justice Court Building, located at 1002 Ridge Road (the building with the blue roof).

The purpose of this meeting is to gain public information and answer resident’s questions on a new proposal from Rochester Transit Authority on bus service to and from Webster. This meeting with the Transit Authority will give Webster residents, business owners, and others an opportunity to ask questions on how employees and others might find transportation from other areas in to Webster for employment and shopping opportunities.

Please mark your calendars for this important meeting with the Rochester Transit Authority.

Royal Car Wash Opened


Just a shout out to Royal Car Wash for their soft opening at their new location on Ridge Road on January 14th.  I understand that there is a free coupon for free car wash good until January 28th that you can find on social media.


We wish them great success and welcome to Webster!

Webster has "Open Government” and “Transparency in Government"

Posted on January 7, 2019 at 1:41 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

Just recently I have seen the buzz words Open Government and Transparency in Government used against our Webster Town government.  These are two issues that we in town government take very seriously. 

My administration continues to strive to be one of the most transparent town governments in Monroe County. We televise Town Board Meetings, Planning Board Meetings, Zoning Board of Appeals Meetings, along with my monthly Electronic Town Meetings. We televise any and all special informational meetings that the Town Board conducts.  All of our Town Board Meetings are televised on Cable Channel 1303, along with streaming those meetings on the Town’s website for residents that do not have cable.

I also have a social media site on Facebook (search for Ronald Nesbitt); along with the Town of Webster's web site and Facebook page, where important information is updated daily.  Just this past week we launched a new website and Facebook page for the Sandbar Park project, where residents can sign up for notifications about meetings, and get up-to-date project news and information.  

For residents that want to have town news and information delivered via email or text, you can go to the Town of Webster's web site and sign up for notifications under the Notify Me tab on the main page.  You can sign up for a variety of notifications including board meeting agendas for the Town Board, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals meetings, town news, informational updates, and emergency alerts.  

Additionally, our Town Times publication is delivered to all residents three times a year. The winter edition of the Town Times will contain pertinent information from the Highway Department, including winter safety information. Recently the Highway Department added a news section to their website where residents can find up-to-date information on road conditions, construction, leaf pickup, and snow plowing operations.

It was mentioned in the past week that no information exists on our website for how residents can apply for positions on the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Library Board, and Conservation Board. These terms only expire at the end of the year (December), and we will be adding information to the town’s website this month that will explain the application process for future openings on these boards.  We conducted benchmark research of surrounding towns in Monroe County, and found that little information exists on how to apply for volunteer boards, including what towns look for when selecting candidates.  Thus, we will be updating our website to include this helpful information and I will share what we have done with the other Town Supervisors.  This will offer residents a greater opportunity to learn how government operates and how they can become more involved. 

The Town Board and I take pride in being open and transparent in providing Webster residents with all the information available about your Webster community and government, and will continue to do so in the future.   I firmly believe if you are not informed here in Webster, it is not that the information is not out there, it may be that you are not looking in the right place.  

If there are different ways you would like to see information delivered to you, please contact me with your ideas and suggestions.  Please know that your Town Board will continue to act in your best interest to bring you any and all information we have so that you, the Webster residents, are well informed.

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

Terrible Year for Leaves

Posted on December 31, 2018 at 12:53 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

This year has been the worse year for leaf pick-up in my 24 years as being a Town Board member. I cannot remember a year where the Highway Department put out leaf equipment and they switched to snow plow equipment and vice versa as many times as this year.

The town tried very hard through social media to keep Webster residents informed about our pick-up schedule and when the Highway would get to various streets. With the 36 miles of town roads it was not always an exact date, but we tried our best.

I have received some phone calls that leaves are still out to the curb and residents would like them picked up. Most of these leaves were put out by contractors, who were also behind on their routes, after the town crews had winterized the vacuum equipment and put it away for the year. We will not be picking these leaves up.

Please note: we will not be picking up anymore leaves this year.  Any leaves that are in your yard or at the curb must be bagged for your waste hauler to take away. It is in the permit process for waste haulers to take bagged leaves, and if you have troubles with this process please give me a call at my office and we will advocate on your behalf.

I think the Town of Webster Highway Department did an outstanding job under very stressful conditions. We appreciate everyone’s patience and apologize to any Webster residents who were inconvenienced this year by Mother Nature.
