Town Supervisor's Update - Friday, April 30th
Summer will be here soon and with it all the great summer activities that take place in our Town. We are all looking forward to the return of the Gananda Garage Sale, the Festival in the Park, Chicken BBQ hosted by the Lincoln and Walworth Fire departments, our outstanding recreation programs, and the many other events we all love to attend with our families and neighbors. Please watch the Town calendar on our Town website for dates and times.
A special thanks to the Walworth Lions Club for organizing their annual town clean-up event. Our town looks great as many Lions, Scouts, and others stepped up to pick-up trash along our roadways. The Lions Club has organized this event for over 40-years on the same weekend as part of their service to our community. Thank you!
Please join us for the 4th Annual Memorial Day Remembrance. I started this 4-years ago as an important part of our Towns service to our community. This event will start with a vehicle parade at 2:00 pm. Please line up on Lorraine Drive and join us as we parade thru town. We will then hold a ceremony to remember those who sacrificed for our freedom. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a veteran and would like to speak as part of the program.
I receive many calls about street lighting, signs, and drainage issues. These areas all fall under the management of our Highway Superintendent. Please feel free to contact him at email@example.com with your concerns.
I have arranged a free confidential drive-thru paper shredding event to be held August 21 st from 9 am to Noon. This will be held at our town hall and is being done at no cost to our taxpayers. Since the Town will also use this free service, it will save taxpayer dollars for a service we had to pay for prior to this event. Special thanks to our sponsor Lyons National Bank!
Several years ago, I started a project to review the safety and utilization of the Gananda Parkway in partnership with the Wayne County Highway department and the Genesee Transportation Council. The study “Gananda Parkway Pedestrian and Bicycle Active Transportation Plan”, provides guidance on how the Parkway can better serve our community. This plan when implemented will improve the quality of life and create business opportunities for our Town. It also will improve public health by creating safe walking paths for our residents. Special thanks to the members of our community that provided input. The next phase is to identify grants to provide funding. Please visit the Town website for more details.
I have received calls from neighbors concerned about the speed of vehicles in our neighborhoods. I am working with the County Sheriff on enforcement of our speed limits.
We are working on a Town-wide clean up and more details will be released soon.
A special thanks to our Town employees who have worked well together to serve our residents during the difficult Covid challenge. Well done TEAM WALWORTH!
It is my honor to be your Town supervisor and I work hard every day for you. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope everyone has a great summer filled with fun and family time!
