From Brighton Town Supervisor

William Moehle Even after a relatively mild winter, we all look forward to shedding the heavy overcoats, opening our windows to let in the fresh air and having the pleasure of spending a lot more time outdoors. Brighton has always been a hometown where you and your family can really enjoy the warmer temperatures in our many parks and trails and enjoy the many spring and summer Recreation Programs. The programs you will find listed in this newsletter will attract both young and the young at heart so remember to register early. Programs fill up quickly so please consider registering using our online registration portal, on the Town of Brighton website at www.townofbrighton.org to ensure you or your children’s spots in your favorite programs. We kick off the 2017 Summer Season with our Summer Day Camp program with registration beginning for Town residents on April 18th. Please be sure to join us at our annual Memorial Day ceremony held each year at our Veterans Memorial in Buckland Park. Our annual Daddy & Daughter Dance is always a big favorite and this year it will be held on June 9th at 6:30 pm. July brings our annual Independence Day celebration. We put on one of the biggest and best July 4th fireworks displays in the area and give you a full day of activities, music and family fun, starting with the annual

Brighton Chamber of Commerce 5K race at Brighton High School, music and rides all afternoon at Meridian Centre Park, leading up to the Skycoasters show at 8pm, and concluding with spectacular fireworks show to cap off the day. Our Tuesday night Summer Concert Series in Buckland Park also returns, starting Tuesday, July 11th through Tuesday August 15th. You can find all the details on these and other events in addition to all of the classes and programs scheduled through the spring and summer months in this 2017 Spring/Summer Newsletter, online on our website and on the Town of Brighton Recreation Facebook Page. Lawn and garden debris pickup resumes soon and there are a few rules to remember to make the job easier and to ensure public safety. One very important rule to follow is that lawn and garden debris should be left on your

grass and not in the street. Debris left in the street becomes a safety hazard for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike, and can also clog our storm drains, already taxed by spring rains and heavy winter snowmelt, and can even cause street and basement flooding. If you hire a landscape company to do any of your lawn and yard work, please ask if they will obtain a permit and transport the debris directly to the Town landfill. Doing so will keep your neighborhood cleaner and safer, and ease the work of our Town Highway Department crews. Also, please remember that the Town does not pick up grass clippings; instead they should be mulched and left on your grass to enrich the soil. Our newsletter serves as an important outlet for us to use in our continued efforts to provide our residents with Brighton information. We also invite you to follow the Town of Brighton on Facebook https://www.facebook. com/BrightonMonroeCounty/ and our Twitter page at https://twitter.com/ townofbrighton . Brighton Recreation, the Brighton Police Department and the Brighton Farmers’ Market also have Facebook pages. Visit our website regularly for all the latest news and updates. We hope you enjoy reading the articles and information contained in this edition of our Newsletter. I wish all of you a fun-filled and safe 2017 Spring & Summer!

Backed Up Sewer/Basement Flooding? Please call the Brighton Highway and Sewer Operations Center 24/7 line at 585-784-5280 (press 2 for the Sewer Department option) for assistance. If this is an after-hours call, an answering service will take your information and contact Sewer Department personnel. If a backup is a result of a blockage in the public sewer main, the Town Sewer Department will remove the obstruction and/or repair the sewer main. If the 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381

obstruction is located within the sewer pipe from the house to the sewer main, the Town Sewer Department, as a courtesy, can assist in assessing the problem and in an emergency, the Town will try to remove the blockage. Generally, this effort provides temporary relief and does not provide a permanent solution. Please note that the maintenance and repair of the sewer pipe from the house to the main is the homeowner’s obligation 2

as well as their responsibility, to seek a permanent solution.

Work Within The Highway Right-Of-Way The Department of Public Works would like to remind Brighton residents and business owners that all work done within the Town’s Right-of-Way requires a permit. Section 166-21 of the Brighton Town Code states that, “No person or corporation shall open, disturb or work within, erect fences or structures, plant

trees within or cause to be opened or disturbed by cutting, missiling, boring, digging, resurfacing or excavating the soil, pavement or sidewalk within any street, sidewalk or right-of-way, for any purpose whatever, without having secured a permit to perform such work.” If you would like additional information, you may obtain a copy of the Brighton

Highway Access Guidelines at the Department of Public Works or at the Highway Department. Permit forms and fee schedule can be obtained at the Department of Public Works or Highway Department offices located at 1941 Elmwood Ave. They also can be downloaded from the Town’s website at www.townofbrighton.org/highway.

It’s That Time Again

2017 Yard Debris Collection to Begin on April 10th When the Town of Brighton begins our yard debris collection program you know it’s a sure sign that blue skies and warmer weather are on the way. This year, the Highway Department will begin the annual collection of brush and debris on April 10th. The Highway Department strives to provide weekly collection of material generated from normal lawn and garden maintenance from spring through fall. The yard debris collection schedule may be altered during this time allowing us to focus on street and infrastructure maintenance as well. As our hardworking women and men make their way through Town, here are a few helpful reminders that will help keep our crews on schedule. 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381

• Grass clippings will not be collected. The Town of Brighton has a grassrecycling program that encourages residents to either compost their clippings or simply leave them on the lawn. Brighton residents may drop off grass clippings for composting at the Highway Department, which is located on 1941 Elmwood Avenue. • Small piles of yard debris or brush must be placed in acceptable containers for a quick, clean pickup. Containers must weigh no more than 50 lbs. Small loose piles will not be collected. • Please place brush and garden debris at the curb in containers or paper bags – not in plastic bags, or in a neatly stacked pile, no more than eight feet long, and free of sod, dirt, or construction debris. 3

• Do not place any debris piles or containers onto the roadway, shoulders or gutters as it creates a safety hazard for bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists and as this is also a violation of NYS Highway and NYS Vehicle & Traffic law. • Do not mix household refuse with yard waste. • For ease of collection, bulk yard debris or brush piles must not be placed next to or around obstructions. Remember that wood chips are available at the Town of Brighton’s Highway Department. Residents need to bring their own container. For more information, call the Highway Department at 784-5280 or check out the Town’s website at www. townofbrighton.org for daily location updates of yard debris collection. www.townofbrighton.org
