Construction is set to begin this winter on the $9.5 million Braddock Bay Wetland Restoration Project. The project, which is funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, will restore and protect regionally significant wetland habitat while improving boater access to Lake Ontario. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has asked the Town of Greece to help inform hunters and the general public of some temporary restrictions which must be honored in the interest of safety. Due to construction activity and the presence of construction workers in Braddock Bay, hunting will be temporarily prohibited in certain areas beginning January 1, 2016. The restrictions will mainly affect waterfowl hunters in the late waterfowl hunting seasons this winter, and for portions of the fall 2016 waterfowl hunting season.

This work is critical to protect and restore the integrity of Braddock Bay wetlands and the habitat that they provide for fish and wildlife.

Basil Marella Field 10, Badgerow South, Badgerow North, and Carter Park wiill be closed today due to flooding.

Thursday, October 1st will mark the last payment on the Town Hall building at 1 Vince Tofany Blvd. The original bond was issued in 1998 for a period of seventeen years. Greece Town Hall remains one of the most modern government buildings in the county, and is the centerpiece of a complex that has recently seen the additions of a new pavilion, pickleball courts, and a splash park.

The retirement of this debt coincides with the plan to build a new police station so as to minimize the budget and tax impact. The new Greece Police Headquarters will also be located on Town Hall Campus.

For more information please contact Michelle Marini.

A public drop-in session will be held at Greece Town Hall in Community Rooms A & B, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, on Tuesday September 22, 2015 to review inventory information and gather public comments on the Hojack Trail Feasibility Study. The study, which is funded by the Genesee Transportation Council, is a collaborative effort by the towns of Greece and Parma, and the village of Hilton which will study the possibility of establishing a multi-use trail on the former Hojack rail corridor, extending from the NYS Route 390 Bike Path in Greece to Canning Street in Hilton.

The drop-in session will give residents of all 3 communities an opportunity to provide input on the study and discuss the project with the advisory committee, project consultants, and representatives from Greece, Parma, and Hilton.

Supervisor Reilich announced today that the Town of Greece will be participating in the 2015 Beach Cleanup day on Saturday, September 19th from 9AM until Noon. This event is an annual cleanup of beaches all over New York State. This is one of New York State’s most important environmental events of the year, and the Town of Greece is happy to participate.
    
This event is part of the larger International Coastal Clean-up sponsored by the American Littoral Society (ALS).  Each year this event removes trash from shorelines all over New York State; 80 tons of trash in 2014 alone. There are currently plans to have groups tend to the Payne Beach area, the Braddock Bay area, and along the lake shore. However, more volunteers are always welcome, and Supervisor Reilich would like to encourage as many folks as possible to assist in this effort.Upon registering for Beach Cleanup Day, volunteers will receive an email with further instructions on where to meet to receive assignments and supplies, as well as go over safety precautions.

 

Online registration for the 2015 Beach Cleanup Day is available under the Special Events section of our website. For further inquiries, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich just received word from organizers at Slide the City that they will be unable to bring the event to the area this year. Citing legal hurdles and safety concerns handed down by New York State, they hope to work on these issues to bring the event back in 2016.   

“We were absolutely disappointed to hear the event was being cancelled,” said Supervisor Reilich in a statement. “Safety has always been our number one concern, and we hope that Slide the City is able to overcome these obstacles to bring the slide to Greece in 2016.”
