Mike Auger, Cable 12 Program Director, Retiring

Posted on June 30, 2014 at 10:01 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

After being Webster’s only Program Director for Cable 12 for the past 32 years, Mike Auger has decided to try a new career path called retirement. Mike has been the guy behind the camera and production manager for many shows that appeared on our televisions such as music shows, comedy shows, and who can forget the Classic TV shows Mike had for us each weekend.

Each year Mike, along with Barry Howard, have produced and narrated the Webster Firemen’s parade from the grandstand on Main Street in the Village. It is always a thrill to watch the parade in person, but it is also fun to watch it three days later on Cable 12, and listen to Mike and Barry talk about the where the fire trucks were from and their history. Side note here: Mike will be doing this year’s parade even though he will be retired at that time!

I have been working with Mike for the past 19 years and it sincerely has been a pleasure dealing with Mike on a professional level and listening to his corny jokes every day I see him. He always has a balanced budget and his budget reviews only lasted a few minutes; we would then discuss more important topics like his latest cruise adventure.

Even when the sound was not working right going over the air or the television picture was a little fuzzy, Mike would always dive in and fix the problem while never losing his patience.  Any time I needed him for a special event it was, “Okay boss, we will be there and get it done”, and he never questioned it, even when I knew it may take him away from his family.

So, it is now time for Mike to sign off and move on to another career path and time for him to enjoy spending more time with his wife Wendy, his three kids and eight grandkids. All of us at the Town of Webster will miss Mike, with his humor and down to earth style, but only wish the best for him in retirement.

Town of Webster Selling E-Z Pass for the NYS Thruway

Starting last week the Town of Webster is selling E-Z Pass in the Town Clerk’s office during business hours. The charge is $25.00 which is credited to your account after your purchase. The E-Z Pass can be used in New York, and 14 other states along the central and eastern coast of the United States. E-Z Pass will save you time and you will receive a discount on New York State tolls as you travel around the State.

So, as you start your summer vacation and think you would like an E-Z Pass, stop in and see our friendly staff in the Town Clerk’s office and purchase an E-Z Pass!  It only takes a few moments of your time.

Webster Summer Celebration

Once again this year the Webster Recreation Department put on an outstanding Summer Celebration for Webster residents. The weather was just outstanding and I have heard nothing but great things about the activities the recreation department had planned for kids and the music by Nik and The Nice Guys.

The fireworks again where outstanding in the cool summer nights air, and they lit up the Webster night for miles.  It seems that every year the fireworks get better and better.

I, along with the Town Board, want to truly thank all the employees that worked so hard that day to provide Webster residents with a quality fun filled day of activities and friendship amongst our neighbors and friends. Your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed, so thank you again.

July 4th Holiday

In celebration of the Independence Day holiday, the Webster Town Hall will be closed on Friday, July 4th.  We will reopen for business on Monday, July 7th.

As you celebrate the 4th of July holiday, please remember that it is illegal for individuals without licenses and proper training to discharge fireworks. This law was designed to protect people from injury. If you want to see fireworks there are plenty of localities that have their own 4th of July celebrations.

On behalf of all the employees at the Town of Webster, I wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July!

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
