From Brighton Town Supervisor

William Moehle As I write this column, winter has yet to make much of an appearance in Brighton. People are raking leaves and families are enjoying the Brickyard Trail. With any luck, by the time you are reading my column, we can still say that we are waiting on winter to announce its arrival. As always, though, winter weather will be with us for a while, and so will winter activities, both indoors and out, and plenty of fun for the whole family, especially if you are willing to brave the elements. Whether it’s skating or shopping; pickleball or pinochle, you can find it all and then some in Brighton this winter! Join your family in taking up a new winter sport, start that art project you always imagined you could do or meet new friends at the senior center. There’s no need to drive through the snow to register for programs at Brighton Recreation; secure on line registration is available through the Town webpage, www.townofbrighton.org/rec. The Brighton Symphony Orchestra also performs throughout the winter, including their popular holiday concert on Sunday, December 17th at 3pm at The Clover Center/Baptist Temple, 1101 Clover Street (corner of Highland). Free Admission with a dessert reception following the concert. Ric Jones will be conducting with Michael DeLuca as Narrator and Vocal Soloist. Many Christmas / Hanukkah / Holiday Favorites, including the Suite from “The Polar Express”! The popular Brighton Winter Market will be open through mid-May, every Sunday except Easter Sunday, from 1-4pm, at Brookside School. Every week you can enjoy local meats and fresh produce, along with breads, desserts and cheese, from many of the same vendors that participate in the Brighton Farmers Market during the warmer months. Eat healthy during the winter, see neighbors and friends and enjoy local acoustic musicians, all at the Winter Market, on 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381

Sunday afternoons. Looking to the future, the Town has begun preparations for construction on the planned new Winter Market location in Buckland Park. This will allow the Winter Market to expand and thrive in a former farm building. The Brighton Memorial Library continues its active programming for all ages during the winter months. Whether you are a senior or the parent of a tween or toddler; if you’re looking to take a lunchtime break with Books Sandwiched In, enjoy a family movie night out or learn to use an E-Reader, the Brighton Memorial Library has you covered! The Library is generally open 7 days a week during the winter, holidays excluded. For more information about Library programming, visit www. brightonlibrary.org. The new Brickyard Trail, like all Town parks and trails will be open all winter. We will not be plowing the Brickyard Trail, or any of our other trails, so you will be able to use them, not only for hiking but also for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The Brickyard Trail and Lehigh Valley Trail will also be open for cyclists, including fat tire snow riding, throughout the winter. Please remember that cycling is not permitted in Corbett’s Glen Nature Park. Dogs must be leashed at all times in all Town parks and on all Town trails. Many people also walk on our sidewalks duringthewinterandthereforeallproperty owners are required by law to keep the sidewalks in front of their properties clear of ice and snow. Remember, school children are walking to school while it is still dark in the morning, and they must be able to safely use sidewalks. If you or your neighborhood would like an easier way to meet this obligation to clear your sidewalks for next winter, talk to the Department of Public Works about establishing a sidewalk snow removal district in your neighborhood. It will cost only a few dollars a year, and ensure safe sidewalks, while saving you time and cold mornings shoveling heavy snow. 2

While walking and cycling, even during winter, is good for our health and for the environment, sometimes driving is the only practical option. Winter driving can bring special hazards, so remember these tips to stay safe during the winter months. • Allow yourself more time to get to your destination • Brake slowly and avoid making any sudden stops, turns and lane changes • Clear all snow from your car windows and lights for visibility • Consider snow tires, rather than allseason tires, for superior stopping on ice and snow Of course, it is always important to observe speed limits and traffic signs, but remember that even driving at the speed limit may be too fast for inclement winter conditions. Remember that pedestrians are still out during the winter, and kids may be especially difficult to see, especially when snow piles line our streets. Our police are on patrol as well, and receiving a speeding ticket is one winter activity you’ll want to avoid. Also remember that snow plows need extra room to operate…please give them that room, and don’t try to pass or pass them in close quarters. Before long, the crocuses will be back in bloom, and spring will cheer everyone’s spirits, but in the meantime, the Town of Brighton can make your winter a little brighter!

Brighton Winter Farmers’ Market The local food goodness continues year-round - the indoor Brighton Farmers’ Market is open all winter, bringing a large assortment of delicious foods to the community. Each week choose from all-local fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, eggs, baked goods, pastas, jams, maple products, sweets, and more. Our farmers have expanded their operations to be able

to grow and store crops far beyond the traditional growing season in our area, and the selection grows every year. There is live music each week, and Color Brighton Green collects hardto-recycle items. SNAP customers are welcome. The Market is held Sunday afternoons 1-4 pm in the Brookside Center gym, 220 Idlewood Rd. The summer season of the Brighton Farmers’ Market opens May 13.

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. • 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 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381

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.

towing and storage charges. • Driveway Clearing - Driveway maintenance is the property owner’s responsibility. 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.

• 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 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 3

2018 Assessment Revaluation Project Update

)URP7RZQRI%ULJKWRQ$VVHVVRU·V2IÀFH The Town of Brighton is committed to preserving fairness in each annual Assessment Roll (Town-wide listing of all commercial and residential property Assessments) so that property owners pay only their fair share of property taxes. Our last town-wide assessment revaluation took place in 2008. Therefore, we have begun the process of a 2018 Revaluation to re-establish Full Market Value Assessments for the 2018 Assessment Roll. Market Value is defined as how much your property will sell for under normal and current conditions. This is determined by the current activity in the Real Estate Market and the general economy. The value of your property will be based on an analysis of the entire local market for a full two to three calendar years before the completion of this Revaluation. For residential properties, in particular, the value should be in line with sales of properties with similar style, age, size and location.

The Commercial property assessment change notices were mailed at the end of July with Informal Hearings held in August.

The Residential change notices will be mailed by December 1, 2017. The values detailed in the notices are preliminary

values. These notices will include information on options and timeframes to discuss and/or review your new assessment through an informal hearing process. The Residential Property Informal hearing course of action is your opportunity to share information you believe is relevant to the valuation of your property. These Hearings will be held in January and February 2018 at the Town Hall. Beginning December 1, 2017, property owners will be able to schedule a hearing through the Town’s website (www.townofbrighton.org/revaluation) or by calling the Town Hall. Should you request a hearing, a Residential Review Packet will need to be completed, which will also be available to complete and submit electronically through the Town’s website or available for pick up in the Town’s Assessor’s office at the Town Hall. Our Tentative Assessment Roll for 2018 will be filed on May 1, 2018 with the Final Assessment Roll being filed on July 1, 2018.

Clerk’s Corner

Conversations with Town Clerk Daniel Aman The 2018 Town & County Tax bills will be mailed during the last week of December. If you do not receive your bill by January 12, 2018 please call my office (784-5240) right away so we can investigate. Your full payment or first installment is due by February 10, 2018 - HOWEVER - since that is a Saturday, any payments made on Monday, February 12th will be considered timely. As always, complete payment instructions and deadlines can be found on the reverse side of your bill. I have one change to announce for this cycle. I am always here past 5pm on the due dates (barring an act of nature), but if you are running a bit behind schedule just give my office a call. I am happy to stick around a few extra minutes. If you can’t get here until much later, I 585-784-5260 • TTY 585-784-5381

have good news - we have installed a payment drop box at Town Hall! It is located at the rear of the building at Entrance #9. Please DO NOT use online bill pay, when you use this service, your bank still actually mails us a paper check. NYS Real Property Tax Law Section 925 defines the payment date as the USPS postmark or (absent a postmark) the day it is actually received. 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 result in you owing additional interest. Installments or full payments can be made in person at Town Hall, at either 43

of the M&T branches (S. Clinton or Monroe Ave) in Brighton, or by mail. 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.

A Message from the Chief WE NEED YOUR HELP! Crime prevention is a cooperative effort between residents and the police. This past year we have investigated a number of crimes that could have been prevented which included items of value that were left in unlocked and unsecured vehicles that were stolen. In some instances, thieves went vehicle to vehicle in driveways, opening the cars that were left unlocked removing all items of value. Concertedly we can work to prevent these crimes. Police agencies across

the country have launched an initiative that asks residents to check to make sure that vehicles and their homes are locked and secure before heading to bed. I am asking all of the residents in the Town of Brighton to take a few moments to check to ensure that their vehicles and home are secure and that any items of value have been removed from cars and safely secured in their home. Together we can prevent crime.

Have a concern or question? Please do not hesitate to call me direct at (585) 784-5101 or by e-mail Mark. henderson@townofbrighton.org.
