2015 Brings Some Changes at the Webster Town Hall

Posted on January 5, 2015 at 1:29 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

As many are aware, Chief Jerry Pickering retired on January 2nd and took on a new job with the University of Rochester. To continue on with our outstanding police department, the Town Board appointed Lt. Joe Reiger as Acting Chief until a Civil Service test can be administered this spring. 

On behalf of all of the employees at the Town Hall, we wish Chief Pickering well in his new endeavor and are confident in Lt. Reiger running the Webster Police Department as we move forward. 

Another change that will be coming in February is the retirement of Gary Kleist.  Gary is the Commissioner of Public Works and he has decided to retire to spend more time with his grandkids and enjoy his passion of travel and skiing. The Town Board, at the present time, is interviewing candidates for the position of Commissioner of Public works and will make an announcement of Gary’s replacement in the coming weeks.

Back in July, 2014, our Cable Television saw the retirement of Mile Auger.  Karen Buck took over the position as Cable Television Director and she has done a great job!  I know that Karen is open to new ideas for Cable 12, and if you have any that you might like to see, please contact her at the Cable Studio to discuss these with her.

On December 30th, at the 2015 Organization Meeting, the Town Board appointed many members of the Webster community for various positions on our Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Library Board, PROSAR Board and the Board of Assessment Review.  We are now all set to begin the New Year with a full staff of full-time and appointed employees of the town.

If you have any questions of your town government, please feel free to contact me at the office any time at 872-7068 for the correct and truthful explanation of any concerns. Sometimes as I read about happenings in our town where the information is wrong, misleading, or just plain gossip; a quick phone call to the Supervisor’s office would clear up the matter in no time. 

I have absolutely no reason to not tell any Webster resident what is happening in the town and I will continue to openly express the truth about any building project or any other discussion in town. While some may not like my approach, I can guarantee you that it always will be the truth.

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
