With the recent snows in the Buffalo area, the Town of Webster Highway Department received an urgent call for help from the Highway Department in Hamburg, NY. With the Town’s consent, three of our Highway employees and two front loaders set out to help the Town of Hamburg dig out of the seven foot snow banks that impeded the moving of traffic in their town.
Highway Superintendent Joe Herbst along with Foremen Jeff Kujawa and Joe Marrapese spent last weekend digging out the streets in Hamburg with the two front loaders. The residents were thrilled when they saw the Town of Webster trucks arrive as some had not been able to leave their homes in four days.
One email I received from a resident of Hamburg stated, “My neighborhood was less than 80 inches of snow this week. It was awesome to see your highway department front loader #38 taking care of business. I was finally able to get out of my driveway after 4 ½ days – job well done!”
I would like to also thank Town of Penfield Supervisor Tony LaFountain for allowing one of the town’s highway employees to transport one of our front loaders to Hamburg to get this job done. I think I can say for all Webster residents that it feels good to help out a neighboring town in need of our help.
In talking with Town Clerk Barbara Ottenschot as we end the fiscal year for 2014, we still have a lot of dog owners that have not re-registered their dogs this year. Please take the time, before the end of the year, to get this simple process done to ensure that your dog is legally licensed in the Town of Webster.
If we have to send out reminders in 2015, the town will begin to add a late fee to the license renewal to cover the cost of postage, material and labor for these reminders. Also, in my discussions with Animal Control Officer Tom Link, we are looking in to the possibility of doing a town-wide census of all dogs within the Town of Webster. This is not an easy task to do, but something the town is considering since it has not been done in a long time.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
