From the Supervisor – January 2017
Heading into this holiday season, Town Hall has been hard at work in many different areas. The third annual holiday tree lighting ceremony and a family holiday party was a great success bringing together families from across our town to part take in the great holiday tradition. A special visit from Santa along with a performance by the Greece Arcadia Middle School Choir and Greece Performing Arts Society rounded out the evening perfectly with holiday music.
Last month the Town Board unanimously approved the 2017 Budget. Since first taking office I made a commitment to the residents of our Town that I would not raise taxes nor draw from the Town’s fund balance to short cut any budget gaps. This year’s budget is the product of many months of tough decision making and diligent spending practices. That is why I am pleased to announce that for the fourth straight year the town tax rate will remain flat while continuing to provide enhanced quality of life amenities. This accomplishment could not have been done without the diligent work of our town’s department heads and the employees throughout Town Hall. The future for the Town of Greece is bright and I will continue my pledge to our taxpayers and the businesses and families that call Greece home that I will take this Great town and make it better.
As the weather turns colder, we will again be converting our pickle ball court into an ice skating rink that is free for all Greece residents to enjoy. Families can change into their skates at our enclosed booth. For more information on the status of the Ice Rink please check in on the Town of Greece web page under Community and Senior Center. I always look forward to seeing families spending quality time at our Greece Town Hall Campus.
Lastly, I would like to wish all of our residents and their families a safe and happy holiday season and a healthy New Year. As always, if I can be of assistance to you in any town related matters, please do not hesitate to contact my office directly at 225-2000.
