Follow-up to the Power Outage in West Webster

Posted on January 20, 2014 at 11:08 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

I have been in constant contact with our representative from Rochester Gas and Electric on the recent outages in the West Webster area and along Route 404 in the Webster Commons area.

The aerial cable that feeds three other sub-stations has be rerouted and the testing is proceeding with reevaluations as to what other changes they can make to stop these outages from happening in the future.  The Webster outages are a top propriety for RG&E at this time and they are working hard to permanently stop the outages from happening again to the 4,000 customers that where affect by these recent outages.

They are looking to replace the line permanently and will keep me up to date on what actions they might take in the future if we need a short power outage to replace the line. I will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed about how RG&E decides to proceed.  Thank you all for your understanding of this very sensitive matter.

More Smoke and Mirrors    

In listening to the Governor in his State of Budget address is it me or am I just hearing more of the same smoke and mirrors of transferring money from one pocket of the tax payer to the other pocket of the taxpayer?  Just last year we had deficiencies in the State government budget and now we have a $2 billion surplus.  Are you kidding me? Did we pay off the $3,000 each man, women, and child owed to the state to pay of the state debit?

He now wants us to bond $2 billion to upgrade computers in schools and put that bill on the backs of our kids and grandkids going forward. Haven’t we already burdened them with enough debts here in New York State without applying more to them? Residents are leaving the state in droves right now because of the huge taxes and this governor wants to level more bonding on our backs. That is not solving the problem that’s a campaign promise to get re-elected and I could care less about whether that happens or not. I want a balanced budget that is going to steer New York State into prosperity not more smoke and mirrors.

As always, 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 supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us
