I hope everyone is staying safe and warm as we battle through another Western New York winter season! I would like to remind residents to allow for extra travel time during their commute and to be mindful of weather warnings.

To kick off 2018, we have welcomed new officials to the Town of Greece, hosted an unveiling ceremony for the Greece Public Library’s Creation Station, and participated in a new business ribbon cutting ceremony for Ruby Gordon Furniture and Mattresses. Coming up this month, we will join our friends at the Community and Senior Center for their annual Valentine’s Day Party. We will also be hosting a new business ribbon-cutting ceremony for Wood Kettle Brewing.

We started the New Year by welcoming new elected officials to the Town of Greece. We held a swearing-in ceremony for the new elected officials that will be serving the residents in the 2nd and 3rd Wards as well as our new Receiver of Taxes, Andrew Conlon. Serving the 2nd Ward will be William Murphy, who began his first term replacing former Councilman Brett Granville who was successful in his bid for Greece Town Justice. Murphy, a former Greece Police Officer and former Chief of the Holley Police Department, will bring his experience in public safety and community service to Town Hall. Another new elected official, Joshua Jensen, will be representing residents living in the 3rd Ward, a seat previously held by Andrew Conlon. Councilman Jensen has served on our Traffic Advisory Committee and is a member of Senator Joe Robach’s staff. Taking on his position early in order to assist residents with the pre-payment of 2018 Town and County Taxes, Former Councilman and now Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon has been a strong advocate for the residents in the 3rd Ward and will now be serving residents throughout the entire town.

We now have a new addition to the Greece Public Library Main Branch: a Creation Station! Located directly behind the Information Desk, the Creation Station will be used for a variety of maker opportunities such as 3D printing, which will allow users to create tangible objects from a computer file. The space will also include 10 Cricut machines, which is a wireless design and cut system that allows users to create a variety of objects from paper, vinyl, poster board, fabric, and more. The Creation Station was made possible by a state grant secured by Senator Joe Robach. Library patrons (16 and over) are required to complete an orientation session and user agreement with a library staff member prior to utilizing the 3D printing service. Patrons can bring their own design on a portable drive or use the designs offered by the library. Please call the Greece Public Library at 225-8951 or visit their website at www.greecepubliclibrary.org to register for a scheduled orientation class.

Be sure to check out a great new business in Greece: Ruby Gordon Furniture and Mattresses. We welcomed this new business to 140 Greece Ridge Center Drive earlier this month. With 81 years of experience in the designer furniture industry, Ruby Gordon is Rochester’s largest owned family furniture store. Ruby Gordon has over 300 room settings on display in the store and boasts a selection of living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, entertainment options, accent furniture, and mattresses. I wish Ruby Gordon owners Raymond Ruby and Aaron Ruby and their families and team great success in their new location!

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