Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon are pleased to announce that they will be extending business hours for tax collection purposes on Monday, September 16, 2019. Since the last day to pay school taxes without any interest charges is September 15, 2019, which falls on a Sunday (a non-business day), an extension is authorized or required to be granted to the next business day. Monday marks the last day to pay without interest ONLY if the individual is paying by installments. Full payments are due without interest October 1, 2019.

Regular business hours for the Tax Department are 9:00am – 5:00pm, but because we anticipate there may be a heavier volume of residents coming in, we will be offering extended hours. Therefore, the Greece Town Hall Tax Receiver’s Office will be open from 9:00am – 7:00 pm on Monday, September 16, 2019 to assist residents. Additionally, the post mark date for those residents choosing to mail in their tax payment is also September 16, 2019.

“We are happy to extend our regular business hours in an effort to assist our residents in making their school tax payments in a timely manner” said Supervisor Reilich and Andrew Conlon. “Customer service is always a top priority and we hope that the extended hours will be a convenience for residents looking to pay their taxes on Monday the 16th.  

Today, September 11th, 2019 marks the 18 year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93 which crashed in suburban Pennsylvania. The flags on the Greece Town Hall Campus will be flown at half-staff to serve as a remembrance of the lives lost on that September morning. We will never forget.

Peyton Penna and Preston Grant received special recognition for their incredible impact on our community. This summer, the boys decided to set up a lemonade stand and sell cooling drinks in the heat of summer for $0.25. After the first day, they had sold $12.00 worth of lemonade. When discussing what to do with the money, they decided they would use the money to buy school supplies for children who could not afford them. The next day, the boys set up the lemonade stand again and this time sold $100.00 worth of lemonade! They allowed services members – firefighters, police officers, veterans, and mail carriers – to drink for free. The boys split their proceeds and Peyton bought school supplies for his elementary school – Craighill Elementary, and Preston bought school supplies for his elementary school – Longridge Elementary.

“I would like to commend both boys for their incredible impact on our community and for showing all of us how kindness can make a difference” said Supervisor Reilich.
