We have much to be thankful for …

Posted on November 23, 2015 at 9:07 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

It is that time of the year when we all seem to be more aware of what we have, are more appreciative of family and friends, and seem to be more mindful of others; especially as our national and state economies remain fragile.  It is during this season that beckons all of us to put aside our differences and be supportive of each other.

I have always been inspired by the generosity of the Webster community to those less fortunate. This spirit of one neighbor helping another is just part of what makes Webster such a great community.  On behalf of the Town Board, I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to the many volunteers throughout Webster who have given of themselves by donating their time, effort, and in some cases financial assistance. This is what the spirit of the holidays is truly about; helping those who truly need help. It would be impossible to list every person and organization, so to all of them please accept our sincere appreciation. 

To the men and women that I call my Department Heads I extend a huge note of thanks for their dedication and hard work.  To the Town Board, Bill Abbott, Patti Cataldi, Barry Deane and Randy Nelson, my thanks to you for the continued support to help make the Town of Webster the place, “where life is worth living!”  To my assistant, PattiAnn Schultz, my thanks to her for her professionalism and wonderful sense of humor.  To all the employees here at the Town – thank you for your hard work on behalf of the residents.  Without these individuals I would not be able to govern the Town of Webster and provide the services in which we have come to depend upon.

In this season of being thankful, please allow me to personally thank my dear wife Karen, our children and grandchildren… we have been through a lot this year and as a result we are a stronger and closer family. My family means everything and you have always been there for me, for which I am so grateful.

Just a reminder that Webster Town Hall will be closed Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th to allow our employees to spend time with their family and friends for this Thanksgiving holiday.

On behalf of all the employees of the Town of Webster, I wish you and yours a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Governor … Where is my Check?

Posted on November 9, 2015 at 10:10 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

Last year under the 2% Tax Cap, the Governor had all of the Towns, Villages and School Districts complete forms outlining the shared services we each did to save taxpayer’s dollars.

As President of the Monroe Council of Governments representing the Towns, Villages, and School Districts, we all worked hard to meet the May deadline to report our shared services to New York State. We were to hear by July 31st if any additional information was needed.  As of writing this column, we are still waiting to hear from the New York State if our submissions meet with their approval.

The checks where to be mailed to property owners for the Town of Webster, the Village of Webster and the Webster School District residents because all of us stayed under the New York State imposed Tax Cap for 2014, and we should have receive a check before October 15, 2015. How the state calculates these checks are also a mystery because New York State has yet to inform us as to how the formula is going to be done.

Last year in October, we received a small check based on the Webster Central School District staying under the cap in 2013 (the town was not part of the rebate formula). The check you received last year was small, from $30.00 to $75.00, based on the assessment on your home. Newspaper reports this year state that this year’s checks could range from $150.00 to $300.00 because Webster Town government, Webster Village government, the Webster School District and the County of Monroe did indeed stay under the mandated Tax Cap in 2014.

My question at this time is “Where is my check?” No date has been announced from the Governor’s office on when Webster residents will receive this year’s rebate check. They continue to do these rebates and gimmicks, at the expense of us the taxpayer, but refuse to address the real issues of runaway taxes.  They just announced in June that another rebate program for a $185.00 is to start next year but we have little information on it at this time.

News Flash to New York State: cut payroll taxes, cut income taxes and stop with all these rebates and gimmicks to make it look like you are giving New York State residents a tax break. Residents are leaving New York State in droves because of the high taxes and our young people are moving elsewhere because of high taxes. Wake up Governor and address the real problem this state has and that is high taxes.

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
