As you may have heard recently, we have installed a naturally freezing outdoor ice rink here at Town Hall. While Mother Nature has been kind to us the majority of our winter season, she came through for us “just  in  the  nick  time.”  I am pleased to announce that our Town of Greece ice rink officially opened to the public just in time for the start of Spring Break week. The addition of the ice rink to our Town Hall campus is another great amenity for Greece residents to come together and enjoy the great outdoors during our winter months. Admission is free to all Greece residents and one dollar for non-residents. For an up-to-date status on whether or not the ice rink is open, please visit the Town’s website under the Community and Senior Center tab.

Another great thing happening around Town Hall is the recent construction project for the new Greece Police Department Headquarters. I had the privilege of joining Chief Phelan, and the Greece Town Board on January 20, 2016, for a ceremonial ground breaking to kick off the beginning of this important project. Since first taking office Public Safety has been one of my top priorities. This new facility will help to finally give our Police Department the tools and resources necessary to help protect and keep our community safe utilizing the latest state of the art technology. If you are interested in getting construction updates along the way please email us at greecepoliceconstructionupdate@greeceny.gov to receive monthly updates.

Additionally, with the weather being so great, we decided to get a jump start on preparing for a very busy summer ahead. This summer will be filled with many town favorite events  like  the  Old  Fashioned  Fourth  of  July  Celebration,  Supervisor  Reilich’s  Summer  Concerts at the Hall, and the Jerry J. Helfer Memorial Food Truck Rodeo and new events are planned as well. Keep a look out on my Facebook page for details about these events and others in the coming months.

As always, I enjoy hearing feedback from residents about programming and other town related issues. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office or visit our website.
