Around Town – April 30, 2024

With the loss of the Pennysaver I will be posting my column on the Town website in the
future. I would first like to thank Dave Paddock, the Town Board, Patty Canfield, Mary
Margaret Ripely and Eric Stauffer for filling in for me for the last 3 months. For those
who don’t know I have been out of the office since January with some serious health
issues. If you have tried to email me or leave a voice mail and haven’t gotten a
response please call the main office number. I will be returning to the office and my
duties as my recovery allows.

It is no secret that the main topic of conversation in town is the new assessment. To be
clear, New York state law gives no authority to the Town Board on raising, lowering or
timing of any reassessment process. The full text of the regulation will be posted in the
minutes of the last board meeting. Jim Kirsch, the town assessor was at the Board
meeting on April 25th to answer any questions and to explain the process both for
assessment as well as how to challenge your assessment. Please feel free to reach out
to him with any questions you have.

On a lighter note, our recreation directors and staff are busy getting ready for summer.
For updates check the Town website or the LeRoy Rec. Facebook page.

Finally, my family and I would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of prayers,
concern and help during my recent health issues. I can’t express how grateful we are to
this community. I feel very blessed to end this column by saying, I can’t wait to see you
around town.
