New Regulations facing our Police and Courts

Posted on October 7, 2019 at 11:48 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

As of the first of the year, if you get an appearance ticket you must show up in court or a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. Many questions are swirling around as to how this new law is going to affect man hours not only in the courts but the Webster Police Department, along with additional costs to bring law breakers in to court.

As of January 1, 2020, no bail recommendation, just a simple appearance ticket. Please read this list carefully and imagine being the victim on any one of these crimes, having a police officer arrest the suspect in front of you and then must issue an appearance ticket on the spot. Yes, that means the cuffs come off and they walk away. Majority of these criminals will not even show up for court on their assigned court date either.

A Place to be is at the Webster Chamber of Commerce Breakfast!

Posted on September 30, 2019 at 9:44 AM by PattiAnn Schultz

The last Friday of every month I block out 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. so that I can attend the Webster Chamber of Commerce “Breakfast Before Business” held at the Knights of Columbus Center on Daniel Drive.

It is an outstanding event where 75 to 100 business members and guests meet to network and talk about on what is going on with their business, and the happenings going on in and around the Town and Village of Webster. Included with breakfast is a speaker on a variety of topics from new government regulations, to health care plans offered by the Chamber, to experiences by Chamber members.

At the last breakfast I learned that Charlie Conrose took the time and money out of his pocket to have the Webster sign along the 104-expressway (heading east over the Bay Bridge) coming into Webster repainted all by himself. This was a huge undertaking getting down the steep slope, but Charlie and his crew got the work done! On behalf of the Webster community, I send out a huge THANK YOU for taking on this task to beautify the landscape as you enter Webster.

This is only one example of the Webster community coming together to accomplish goals and getting results with residents and business owners that care.

I encourage business owners to call the Webster Chamber and get involved in the Chamber or if not, a business owner they have an excellent health care plan for non-business owners. Just give the Webster Chamber office a call and see how they can help you as they have been helping Webster residents and business owners for years.

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 supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us

NEW Flag Collection Box at Town Hall

It has been some time in coming, but we finally have a place to accept worn flags for proper disposal. From our initial post on the Town’s social media page, as of September 6th we collected 49 flags to be properly disposed of!

This past Thursday, the Town Times made its way to resident’s homes with an article on the front page about our flag collection box and how this project came to fruition. As of Friday, September 13th at 1:30 p.m., the box was overflowing! In less than a 24-hour period, we collected 54 worn flags for proper disposal!

The flag collection box is open and ready to accept your worn flags. Please bring them to the Webster Town Hall, Monday – Friday during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Once again, on behalf of the residents of the Town of Webster, my sincere thanks to all that helped to make this project a success for our community.

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 supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us
