I received notice that the Town of Webster received a $1,480,000 grant to install sidewalks, bike lanes, and transit improvements along Ridge Road in the coming years.
This grant was put in to New York State in anticipation of the intersection work being done in 2017-2018 on the intersections of Hard Road, Five Mile Line Road, and Hatch Road. New York State is putting in sidewalks in these sections and the Town of Webster wanted to extend the sidewalks from Holt Road to Five Mile Line Road as part of the overall construction.
By doing this residents could start walking from Five Mile Line Road east to the four corners of the Village of Webster, take a left and go down to the bike path, and walk back to Five Mile Line Road. Or you could enter the bike path at Bay Road and walk to the Village, go down Ridge Road to Hard Road and then walk to Klem Road. There can be many combinations to this walking path, but I think you understand what I am saying. The Town Board is excited to bring more walking paths to Webster on top of the fine trails that we already have in place within our open space areas.
Many thanks go out to Commissioner of Public Works Geoff Benway and Matt Chattfield, Director of the Webster Economic Development Alliance for their support and submission of the grant request to New York State.
Sand and Sand Bags Available
The Town of Webster has sand and sand bags available to residents who may wish to have them to help protect their property from rising water.
Please contact the Highway Department at (585) 872-1443 for more information.
Storm Debris Pick-Up
The town does not normally provide brush pick up, but in light of the severity and magnitude of the March 8th wind storm, the town engaged in a clean-up operation.
"Storm Damage" includes branches, tree limbs, trunks and stumps. It is to be presented roadside within the 15 ft. right-of-way. We cannot go on private property to retrieve brush or stumps.
We will NOT be picking up yard clean up that contains pine needles, leaves or grass clippings. We have completed the first pass and we are currently 50% done with the second and final pass. If you have not gotten your brush out to the curb by our second pass, you will have to make arrangements to have it disposed of properly.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
Pharmaceutical Waste Pickup is April 29th
There will be a pharmaceutical waste pickup at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, 226 Phillips Road, this Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Any unused, unwanted or expired medication is taken for disposal. No appointment is necessary.
If you do not feel comfortable with your personal information on the bottles, you can remove the pills and put them in a plastic bag for us to dispose of.
The Town Hall also has a CVS Drug Collection unit at the Webster Town Hall. This permanent pharmaceutical waste drop box can be found inside the Webster Town Hall, located at the Police Department entrance, 1000 Ridge Road, during regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Like with the pharmaceutical waste pickup, items accepted at the drop box include any unused, unwanted or expired medication such as prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription medication, prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, samples and medications for pets.
Items that are NOT accepted include hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, ointments, lotions, or liquids, thermometers, needles (sharps) and medication from businesses or clinics.
Mulch is still Available at Town Hall
Every spring the Webster Highway Department delivers tons of mulch to the parking lot at Town Hall that Webster residents can retrieve for free for home use. This mulch has been composted by the Highway Department for the last year by the Highway employees from leaves picked up from resident’s yards.
They will continue to replenish the pile each day until the tons of mulch are depleted in the upcoming weeks.
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
