2014 Budget Process Moving Along

Posted on July 29, 2013 at 11:32 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

Coming up on August 8th will be the Town Board’s first televised budget hearing for the 2014 Budget.  The meeting will begin at 4:30 p.m. and you can watch it on Cable 12 television or you may watch it live in the Town Hall Board Room.  The Department Heads from the following departments will present their budgets to the Town Board: the Town Clerk, Police, Assessing, Library, Parks and Recreation and Public Works. At the end of the Public Works budget discussion, Medic-10, the Advanced Ambulance Support team here in Webster, will present their budget to the Town Board.

On Thursday, August 15th also beginning at 4:30 p.m. will be the second part of the Department Head presentations for the 2014 Budget.  Presenting that night will be the Highway Department, Technology, Justice Court, Sewer, Cable, and Finance.

After these discussions with all the Department Heads, the Town Board will meet to go over all of the numbers and I will present my Supervisor’s Budget which will be filed by September 20th.

Adoption of the final budget will take place on October 17th and the Public Hearing on the Town of Webster’s 2014 Budget will be on October 3rd at 7:30 p.m. All Webster residents are encouraged to join in the discussion and offer any and all suggestions that they might have to keep spending down.

Watching the Town Board on Cable Channel 12

As of July 23rd Time Warner has made changes to the cable line up that they offer us and this has affected the town’s live broadcasts of the Town Board meetings, Planning Board Meetings and Zoning Board meetings.  

If you have a cable box you will see no change and you will still see these meetings on channel 12. If you have a direct cable line into your TV set and it is a newer TV, then you will have to re-scan your television channels and you will now pick up our meetings on channel 98. If you have an older TV set before flat screen TV you may go to the Time Warner store and pick up a digital box to use for free until January of 2015. After that January date it will cost you 99 cents per month to rent the box to watch us on channel 12. Any further questions please contact Time Warner and they can help you with directions.

If you should 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
