LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - JUNE 12, 2022 by Jim Farnholz Supervisor, Town of LeRoy (585)768-6910 ext.231 WithMemorial day being the unofficial start of summer things have been very busy around town. Our recreation staff and lifeguards have been hired and are ready to go. The Town and Village are working on getting the pool ready for opening. There have been some delays on delivery of materials for the spray park but construction has started, and if all of the materials arrive we should have it open by the 4th of July.As a cost savingmeasure we are not printing the recreation book this summer. All of the information will be on both the Town web page as well as the LeRoy recreation facebook page. The recreation staff will have a table at the Farmer’s market this week and next, where you can buy pool passes and get information on camps and programs. While on the topic, this Saturday June 11th is opening day of the Farmer’s market. Come out and support local businesses and farmers and enjoy day. I have been getting some questions about the Town wide water project. Presently our application to the Federal government , Rural Development office is being processed. When we receive a response from them we will have some concrete numbers as to cost of the program as well as a potential timeline. My hope is to have this information by August. At that time we will have an informational meeting for all involved. People have expressed concern about theTown doing a reassessment of property. The Town Board and I have decided to postpone any reassessment until there is some stabilization of the housing market. When that happens we will undertake a reassessment but will phase it in over several years to prevent a huge rise in property values and taxes. I would also like to clear up some confusion on assessment. While New York state would like municipalities to be at 100% assessed value, there is NO legal requirement to do so. As such we are sensitive to the tax implications of both reassessment and tax rates and will strive to lessen the impact as much as possible on LeRoy taxpayers. Get out and enjoy the nice weather, I hope to see you around town at the farmers market this weekend.
