From Brighton Town Supervisor
William Moehle Last summer we experienced one of the worst droughts this area had seen in years. This summer…not exactly! The rains came again and again, and while I write this on a beautiful summer morning, already the weatherman is warning of more storms tomorrow. No matter what kind of summer we have, all too soon the days begin to get shorter, August turns to September, the leaves begin to turn colors, and fall is upon us. The end of summer and beginning of fall are always a busy time for families, with back to school excitement. This time of year is also very important in Town Hall. Town recreation programs and public works efforts transition from summer to fall, we develop the Town Budget, ensuring that we maintain our strong financial position and quality Town services while minimizing the impact on taxes, and we focus police efforts on traffic safety, particularly for returning school children. The Brighton Recreation Department After School Program will resume at the beginning of the school year. The After School Program is a NYS Licensed Program for students in grades 1 through 5, located at Brookside School. The After School Program is open on days that the Brighton Central School District is open for a full day. We offer separate school recess programs during
winter and spring recess periods. The After School Program offers indoor and outdoor activities for school age children after school, and is especially convenient for parents with irregular schedules because it does not require a long-term contract or commitment. Your child can be dropped off by bus from either French Road or Council Rock Schools. All children must be picked up from the After School Program not later than 6 pm. This program especially fills up rapidly, so if this works for your busy schedule, sign up right away! Later this fall, our Highway Department crews will transition from summer road and sidewalk projects and picking up lawn and garden debris to concentrate on autumn leaf pickup. I cannot stress enough that during the peak of the season, our leaf pickup crews cannot be in every neighborhood every week, particularly for bulk pickup. The Highway Department posts daily updates on the Town website showing where they are working that day and the next. To make the leaf pickup safer and more efficient, please containerize leaves and debris wherever possible. Containerized materials are neater and are picked up more frequently than bulk material. Please do not place leaves or debris in the street. If you cannot containerize, please place leaves and debris on your lawn near the street. It is illegal and unsafe to place leaves and debris in the street, because they can disrupt traffic and
Senior and Enhanced STAR Exemption Renewal Time For Limited Income Seniors and Enhanced STAR Exemption holders who have not enrolled in the Automatic Renewal Program, the Town of Brighton Assessor’s office has mailed the renewal applications. Please take note that March 1, 2017 is the filing deadline for all Real Property Tax Exemptions, but early filing is always suggested and appreciated. Please note that these exemptions are for owner-occupied primary residences, and the income, as described by New York State for the Seniors with Limited 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381
Income, has a different definition than income for income tax filing. Some other real property tax exemption examples include: Disability – Annual Renewal is required (income detail is similar to Seniors with Limited Income filing requirements) Veteran – one time filing (unless you move—updates of disability ratings may require notification to Assessor’s office) Please call (585) 784-5215 if you have any questions about exemptions or any other assessment related issues. Thank you. 2
cause safety risks to cyclists, pedestrians and drivers alike. They also create a street and neighborhood flooding risk as storm drains can become clogged. If you use a landscape company, encourage them to get a permit from the Town to haul your leaves and debris directly to the Town mulching center on Browncroft Blvd. This will keep your neighborhood cleaner and will help us keep our streets safer for everyone. Speaking of trees, Brighton is proud to be a Tree City USA for the past 15 years. Our tree canopy becomes especially beautiful every fall, but as we saw in the wind storm last March, even well maintained trees can cause significant damage to homes and property in a storm. Trees in the right of way along neighborhood streets are owned by the Town of Brighton. Please report any dead or diseased trees along the street to the Town, but do not remove those trees yourself. When the Town does remove street trees, they generally replant a tree nearby, and they plant species well suited to that location. If you do hire a tree service, they must be registered with the Town, and make sure they know that they must haul away all debris they generate. One thing never changes from season to season; Brighton’s commitment to provide quality services and open government to our residents. We welcome your input and participation in your Town government. Watch our Brighton Town Board and Brighton Board of Education meetings, including Town budget hearings this fall, on Channel 12. Town Board meetings are also live streamed on the internet and archived on YouTube for later viewing. All material and agendas for Town Board meetings are also posted on the Town webpage, as is our budget and capital improvement plan. I welcome comments or questions by email at William. email@example.com and I will do my best to answer your questions or refer you to someone else on Town staff that can. www.townofbrighton.org
Conversations with Town Clerk Daniel Aman The 2017-18 School Tax bills will be mailed during the last week of August. If you do not receive your bill by Sept. 8, it is important that you call my office (784-5240) without delay so we can investigate. This year, the due date of October 1 falls on a Sunday, therefore, full payments made by Monday, October 2 will be considered as timely. For those wishing to pay by the installment option; the first payment is due on or before Friday September 15. Complete payment instructions and deadlines can be found on the reverse side of your bill. Please DO NOT use online bill pay – I know, I use it for everything, too - but when you use this service, your bank still actually mails us a paper check. NYS Real Property Tax Law Section 925 defines the date received as the date of the USPS
postmark or (absent a postmark) the day it is actually received. Important to NOTE: Online bill payment checks do not receive a USPS postmark, so they are not considered paid until we physically receive the envelope. This can be days (or in some cases weeks) after you tell your bank to make the payment and will result in you being responsible for additional interest. 1st Installments or full payments can be made in person at Town Hall, or at either of the M&T branches (S. Clinton or Monroe Ave.) in Brighton, or by mail. Second and Third Installments are made directly to Monroe County. As a reminder, you are now able to renew dog licenses online at townofbrighton. org/doglicenses. If your dog’s rabies vaccination has been renewed since the last license renewal, you can upload
a scan of the rabies form to keep us updated. We are still issuing Marriage Licenses, Accessible Parking Permits and providing Notary services, just to mention a few other services that our office provides, besides Tax Collection. Already looking forward to winter vacations? Don’t forget that we are a Passport Acceptance Agency and process applications Monday thru Friday until 4pm. If you prefer to vacation closer to home, EZ Pass is also available for purchase in our Town Clerk’s office. The Town Clerk’s office is always ready to assist and provide you with the very best in customer service. If you ever have any questions or suggestions on how we can serve you better, please do not hesitate to stop by the office or to let me know by phone, email or @ BrightonClerk on Twitter.
• Mailboxes – It is the Town’s policy to repair mailboxes that are damaged by town plows during snow plowing operations or to replace them with a standard rural mailbox and post. Since there is no legal authority which grants an owner the right to place a mailbox along a public road in the right-of-way, our repairs and replacements are done as a courtesy. The one-piece plastic post/box combinations or any type of custom mailboxes will be replaced with our standard post and box. If you have an expensive and/or decorative mailbox and/or post, it may be worth considering the option of storing it for the winter and replacing it with an inexpensive assembly.
15th. Vehicles in violation of this ordinance are subject to a parking ticket. Repeat violators or vehicles that prevent plowing of a street will be towed and the vehicle’s owner will be responsible for all towing and storage charges.
Brighton Highway Winter Policies The Town of Brighton is responsible for snow and ice control on Town, County and State roads within Brighton with the exception of the NY State Expressways. As winter approaches, we want to remind everyone of the necessary rules and regulations that provide for your safety and the safety of the traveling public on main roads and neighborhood streets within the Town during the winter snow and ice season. Our Highway Department Dispatchers are on duty 24 hours a day during the winter season and may be reached at 784-5280. Some important winter policies for you to be aware of are: • Highway and Road Salting - Our Highway Department follows the “Sensible Salting Guidelines established by the County of Monroe, in conjunction with the Environmental Management Council. This policy requires us to use only enough salt to make our highways safe for motorists, but requires you to reduce your driving speed according to conditions. 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381
• Winter Parking – In order to facilitate snow removal and to eliminate potential hazards, the parking of vehicles on all highways, shoulders, or within three feet of the pavement within the Town, is prohibited between the hours of 2:00 AM and 7:00 AM from November 1st to April 3
• Driveway Clearing – When clearing your driveway of snow, the snow shall be kept on your own property. Any snow pushed, blown or plowed on to any street is a ticketable offense under both New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law and New York State Penal Law. If your driveway is plowed by a private contractor, both you (as the property owner) and the plow operator may be ticketed. Snow should be pushed to the left side of your driveway (if you are facing your house) so that when town snowplows go past your house, it will minimize the amount of snow going back into your driveway. www.townofbrighton.org

2017 Brighton Farmers’ Market The 2017 Brighton Farmers’ Market is open, with 50 farmers and vendors offering all-local high-quality fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, baked goods, flowers, plants, and much more. Many of the farmers are certified organic or use sustainable growing practices. People enjoy the Market for the good food and fun, but they’re also making the world a better place -- buying fresh food directly from the farmers is one of the best things we can do to support a stronger local food system.
Each week there is live music, activities for children, food trucks, recycling, and staff from the Brighton Food Cupboard. Scientists join us at the Ask a Scientist booth to answer all kinds of questions, kids’ questions welcome. The Market welcomes groups that promote the Brighton’s strong, welcoming, inclusive community. SNAP customers are welcome; please ask at the Market tent about the SNAP bonus program.
