Tuesday afternoon, Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Council Members Josh Jensen and Bill Murphy for a Town-sponsored ribbon cutting celebrating the grand opening of Malt + Ember. The new restaurant and brewery, which specializes in wood-fired pizza and craft beer, is located at 134 Greece Ridge Center Drive.
One of the reasons the ownership group of Malt + Ember chose to establish their business in the Town of Greece was because they felt that their business concept could add a unique experience to the restaurant and brewery scene in our community.

“I was excited to host a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the grand opening of Malt + Ember in Greece” said Supervisor Reilich. “I wish Malt + Ember Ownership Group Members Jeff Limuti, Tyler French, Mike French, Brendon Clar, Jimmy Wilmot, and Louie Maier great success!”

Supervisor Bill Reilich, along with Town of Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon and the Greece Town Board, yesterday hosted another free Shredding Event for residents. A Shredding Event was held earlier this year in May and was such a huge success that Supervisor Reilich decided to organize another event for residents.
The Shredding Event was held at the Greece Town Hall Campus. Services were provided by Shred-Text, which is a confidential document shredding company that provides on-site shredding. Shred-Text is also an environmentally-friendly company, as they bring 100% of the shredded paper to an authorized recycler. For more information about the company, please call 247-5250 or visit their website at www.shredtext.com.
“The first Town of Greece Shredding Event held this year was a wild success and we were happy to offer another event for our residents” said Supervisor Reilich. “Hundreds turned out for this event where they were able to watch their confidential documents be shredded on site. It can be very expensive to have a shredding service come to a resident home, so I was glad to be able to provide this service for our residents free of charge”.

Today across our nation, you will see flags lowered to half-staff. On this 17th anniversary of September 11th, we remember all those who lost their lives on the day of the attack on our country. We remember the firefighters, law enforcement, EMT personnel, and all the good samaritans who stepped up during this horrific event to help their community.
I have seen the following post shared several times. I’m very moved by what is said here and I wanted to share it with you.
“On this day...17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am September 11, 2001. In one single moment, life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.”
The tragic events of September 11th, 2001 saw the people of our country come together and stand as one. The outpouring of love and support from communities all across our nation showed the world that we are there for each other.
To all those affected by the 9/11 attack: you will never be forgotten.

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and Town of Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon are pleased to announce an additional service available for Town of Greece residents. Residents may now pay taxes via credit card at the Tax Counter located in Greece Town Hall. The Town of Greece is one of the first towns in Monroe County to offer this service to residents.
With school tax season upon us, residents now have the option to pay their taxes via credit card. School tax season began September 1st, however because of the holiday, today is the first day to actually make the payment in person. Supervisor Reilich chose to implement this service at this time because the school tax is the largest portion of your property tax bill and he thought this would offer another option for Greece residents.
Going forward, residents will have the option to pay all of their taxes using the Town of Greece new credit card machines. Please note that there is a 3% processing charge used for all credit card transactions. This charge is the fee assessed by the bank fee and we must pass it along to residents who choose to use the credit card machine.
The new credit card machine service comes on the heels of yet another service the Town of Greece has installed for tax-paying residents. Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon would like to remind residents that they also have the option to use the night drop box to drop off their school tax checks. The Town of Greece offers this service on behalf of Greece Residents who reside in the Greece, Hilton, and Spencerport School Districts. The drop box is located outside the Service Mall area of Greece Town Hall on the right side of the doors. The purpose of this drop box is to provide residents with a fast and secure method of paying their seasonal taxes. The only form of payment that will be accepted in the drop box must be in check form. All deposits will be collected at 9am every business day by Town of Greece Tax Department Staff and the work will be processed on the previous day’s business date. Please be sure to include a payment stub with your check in order to receive a receipt. In order to ensure resident safety, a camera has been placed in the area to monitor activity. This drop box is for payment of seasonal tax only. Please note that this drop box is a service in addition to the tax services already provided by the Town of Greece. You may still pay your taxes in person or through the mail if you choose.
“This year we have established new services for our tax-paying residents” said Supervisor Reilich and Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon in a joint statement. “We are constantly looking for new and improved ways to assist residents, and are pleased to offer yet another convenient method of paying taxes”.
