Supervisor Bill Reilich is pleased to announce a new service that is now available for residents. Residents now have the option to make court payments online or by phone.
Always looking for new and innovative services, Supervisor Reilich researched ways to assist residents involved with the Greece Town Courts. Today, he is pleased to announce a partnership with nCourt, which is the nation’s largest court fine processor working with courts. nCourt LLC is a government services and technology company that provides software that permits government agencies to collect citation, parking, and other court payments online via the web or mobile device. Our partnership with nCourt allows Defendants to make payments online at www.paycourtonline.com or by calling a toll free number (1-888-912-1541). The payment link can also be reached by visiting the Court webpage on the Town of Greece website: https://www.greeceny.gov/departments/court.
This new payment process provides a convenient service to our residents. It is also the best solution for out-of-town ticket holders. The service charge set by nCourt is 6.99% of the ticket fee + $1 service fee for payments made both online or over the phone. After the defendant submits their payment, the payment information is relayed immediately and the transaction shows up on their credit card statement as from Greece Town Court.
“We have been very busy this year bringing new services to our residents” said Supervisor Reilich. “The latest service we have established is for residents to have the option to make court payments online or via the phone. I am always looking for new and convenient ways to assist residents and am pleased to offer this quick, efficient, and secure method of making court payments”.

Town of Greece Supervisor Bill Reilich and the Greece Town Board have released their proposed budget for the town which reduces taxes again this year. The proposed rate decrease will to go down from the current $6.33 per $1,000 in property value to $6.29 per $1,000 property value. This will be the 4th year that they town tax rate has decreased.
“When I first took office in 2014, I inherited a budget that was running with a 9% deficit” said Supervisor Reilich. “I knew that we needed to take immediate action to right the town’s finances and bring the budget into balance. Our efforts included not only focusing on reducing our costs, but also finding ways to develop new revenue streams and enhance current ones. There was a great deal of effort on both parts and we are now seeing the benefits of our cost-cutting measures. Additionally, we have brought many new amenities and enhanced services to our residents while decreasing our tax rate again in 2019”.
The proposed 2019 budget and capital plan includes:
- A strong $1,000,000 below the tax cap.
- Enhancements and expansion of recreational programs at the Community and Senior Center.
- The planned rehabilitation of another park shelter.
- Improvements to our Town Hall Service Mall.
- A plan to install permanent generators in the remaining town facilities to ensure uninterrupted operation during emergencies.
- The final debt payment on the Greece Public Library facility.
“None of the improvements we are proposing will use any debt to finance them. Because we took action in 2014, we are able to finance more improvements through cash rather than debt. This continues to keep the town’s finances on a sound long-term footing” Reilich said. “I fully expect another reduction in the tax rate next year as we continue to improve and develop alternative revenues. We are taking an incremental approach toward reducing the tax rate, and one that is sustainable”.
A public hearing on the proposed budget is scheduled for Wednesday, November 7th at 5:30 pm at Greece Town Hall.
The flags on the Greece Town Hall Campus will be flown at half-staff until sunset on October 31, 2018 in solemn respect for the victims of the tragedy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on October 27th, 2018. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this horrible act of violence.
Supervisor Reilich is pleased to announce the first of two public forums to be held in conjunction with the town’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan Update. The forum will be held from 4:00pm – 7:00pm on Thursday, November 15, 2018 in Community Rooms A and B in Greece Town Hall, 1 Vince Tofany Boulevard, Rochester, New York 14612.
There will be no formal presentation; instead, the town is looking to hear from residents on a variety of topics that continue to shape the town, including but not limited to housing, jobs and economic development, and the changing face of retail. The town’s Comprehensive Plan Update Advisory Committee has already begun discussing some of these issues and is reaching out to key stakeholders. The next critical step is to seek input from town residents. Town officials and the consultant team will be on hand to answer questions and collect comments.
The 2019 Comprehensive Plan Update is a capstone document that includes by reference other recently completed plans like the 2014 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, the 2015 Sanitary Sewer Master Plan, and the 2016 Parks Master Plan.
