From Brighton Town Supervisor
William Moehle This Spring and Summer newsletter will list programs for the whole family to enjoy, from toddlers to seniors and everyone in between. One of the most popular programs, and one for which it is especially important to sign up early, is our Summer Day Camp. Your child can enjoy a wide variety of activity with friends, while you get some peace of mind at work or a little down time for yourself. Please use our online registration portal at www.townofbrighton.org/rec to ensure your spot in the Summer Camp or any of your favorite programs. We’re all excited to see spring return after another long Rochester winter! While Mother Nature has slept under a blanket of snow, we have been busy. This winter, the Town purchased over 26 acres of open space next to Buckland Park, making Buckland the largest Town Park, with over 144 acres. We also started work on the new Highland Crossing Trail, connecting the Erie Canal Trail and Brighton with the Genesee River Trail and Rochester. The Highland Crossing Trail is a joint Brighton/Rochester project and most of the cost of this new Trail is supported by grant funding. Finally, we began the renovation of the existing barn near the Buckland House that will become part of the new home of the Brighton Winter Farmers Market. The Winter Market will remain at Brookside School at least through the 2019-20 season, but we look forward to a new home, one that will resonate with the 19th Century agricultural use of the Buckland Park land. In May, the Summer Farmers Market returns to Brighton High School for another great season of local food, music and community building. We invite you to join us in honoring our veterans, particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, at our annual Memorial Day ceremony, at our Veterans Memorial in Buckland Park, on Monday, May 27. The Veterans 585-784-5260
Memorial features an eagle, created by local artist Mary Taylor, head bowed in reverence, and it provides a contemplative refuge for veterans and their supporters and loved ones, as well as a home for patriotic gatherings. Speaking of patriotic celebrations, on July 4th, Brighton gathers together to honor our independence and our freedoms, with a full day of activities, music and family fun, starting with the annual Brighton Chamber of Commerce 5K race, then food, activities, music and rides all afternoon at Meridian Centre Park, followed by the Skycoasters show at 8:00 pm, and ending with a bang at our spectacular fireworks show over the Erie Canal. In July and August, all ages are invited to come out to Buckland Park for our annual Tuesday night Summer Concert Series starting July 9 through August 13. The concerts feature a wide variety of music, from the Brighton Symphony Orchestra to the reggae sounds of Noble Vibes. This spring, we will again hold several recycling and environmental events to help clean our streets and your home. April 27, is Drug Take Back Day, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at Town Hall. Clean your medicine cabinet, protect children, pets, and the watershed by turning in unneeded medications. Brighton Clean Sweep is Saturday, May 11, beginning at Town Hall at 9:00 am, and then going out into the community to give Brighton its annual spring cleaning. Finally, our electronics recycling and document shredding event will be held on May 18, from 9:00 am - Noon, at the Brighton Highway Department, 1941
Elmwood Ave. More information on each of these events is available at www. townofbrighton.org. Our lawn and garden debris pickup resumes when winter weather abates. Please remember 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 storm drains, potentially causing street and basement flooding. If you hire a landscape company to do any of your lawn and yard work, please ask them to obtain a permit and transport the debris directly to the Town landfill. This will keep your neighborhood cleaner and safer, and ease the work of our Town Highway Department crews. Tree service companies MUST haul their debris to the landfill and they must be registered with the Town. Please remember that the Town does not pick up grass clippings; they should be left on your grass to enrich the soil. Finally, a reminder that the Town of Brighton does not use pesticides or herbicides on Town property, except in emergency situations. We encourage our residents to consider doing the same, to help reduce the flow of pesticides into our watershed and to support butterflies, bees and other pollinators. The spring and summer never seem to last long enough, but you can find new ways and favorite ways to enjoy Rochester’s best weather at Brighton’s Recreation Department and in Brighton’s parks system!
April 27 is Drug Take Back Day 2
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.
2019 Yard Debris Collection to Begin on April 8th 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 garden debris on April 8th. 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.
• 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.
• 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.

Conversations with Town Clerk Daniel Aman Summer Su traditionally means an increase in the number of door-to-door salespeople who walk throughout our community so this is a good time for a refresher on Town’s Code surrounding these activities. Under Brighton Town Code, solicitors may knock between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Approved solicitors must, at all times, display the laminated badge for 2019 with their name, company name and a QR code which links back to our website. A list of all current permit holders is available on the Town website @ townofbrighton.org/solicitors.
I have added a complaint form to that webpage this year. If the interaction with the solicitor is a negative one (i.e. he/she is aggressive, does not have or refuses to show the town issued permit), please let me know by submitting the form. If a company continues to violate the code, I have the ability to revoke their permits, and these forms will provide backup for that hearing. As always, please use caution when opening the door to any unknown individual. If at any time, you feel unsafe or threatened CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
In addition, solicitor permits are not required of political canvassing, religious organizations or groups who qualify as a not-for profit under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We ask that these tax exempt organizations still let me know they will be in Town so we can in turn let our residents know. If you prefer not to receive door-todoor solicitations, you may place a “No Solicitors” sign on or near your door as a legal warning that uninvited guests are not welcome.

There will be live music each week, activities for kids, food trucks, community groups, and friends meeting friends each Sunday morning. Special events will be held
throughout the season, including the Bike Rodeo on June 2 and Color Brighton Green’s Eco-Fair on June 16. The Market is held in the Brighton High School parking lot, 1150 Winton Road South. EBT/SNAP customers are welcome; stop by the Market tent for information about the SNAP bonus program. The Brighton Farmers’ Market is sponsored by the Town of Brighton.

Farmers’ Market continues through May 5, Sunday afternoons 1:00 - 4:00 pm in Brighton’s Brookside Recreation Center, 220 Idlewood Rd., Rochester (easy access from S. Winton between Westfall and 590). Local farmers and producers bring high quality crops and products to our community all year!
