Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and the Greece Town Council Members invite all to attend a Summer Concert and Food Truck Rodeo on Tuesday, August 10th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the Greece Town Hall Campus. The concert that evening will feature the Skycoasters.

Food trucks participating include local favorites Meat the Press, J&S Fried Dough, Mary’s Food, Robs Kabobs, Lugias Ice Cream, Wraps on Wheels, Macarollin’, Mr. Squeeze Lemonade, Kona Ice, Terry’s Tips and Beef, and Agatina’s.

“Come out to the Greece Town Hall Campus evening of food, music, and fun! There is no admission or parking fee” said Supervisor Reilich.

This morning, Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon for a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the grand opening of Margarita’s Mexican Cantina, located at 2525 West Ridge Road in the Town of Greece.  

Margarita’s Mexican Cantina is owned by Jose Castaneda. Jose is originally from Saltillo, Mexico. He and his family and associates have been involved in the culinary business for over 20 years and have 12 restaurants across the state. Jose has had his eye on a location in Rochester for quite a while and found the perfect spot in Greece. Jose’s daughter, Brenda Castaneda, will be the manager of this location and will be assisted by General Manager’s Marissa Salazar and Jose Avalos.

“The Town of Greece is proud to be home to Margarita’s Mexican Cantina” said Supervisor Reilich. “We are very excited that Jose Castaneda and his family and associates are expanding to Greece, and we wish them great success in their newest location!”

 Earlier this year, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich opened a survey to Greece residents to help the Town of Greece choose the next aqua spout to be placed in the popular Wild Over Water (WOW) Splash Zone. The WOW Zone is located on the Greece Town Hall Campus to the left of the Community and Senior Center and is the region’s largest municipal splash pad.

The survey, which was available on Facebook, offered participants two options and prompted them to choose their favorite. The options were between a Sally Spider Aqua Spout and a Billy Box Turtle Aqua Spout. Over 400 residents participated in the survey! With 273 votes, Billy Box Turtle won by a landslide! On Thursday, July 29th, Supervisor Reilich officially unveiled the Billy Box Turtle Aqua Spout.

As an added surprise we are adding another new feature. Larry the Lion will have your little ones sliding into the fun! Come see both of these new features that we welcomed to the WOW Zone. Free for Greece residents and open Sunday – Saturday, 10:00am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm – 7:00pm through Labor Day, September 6th, 2021.

“Last week, we officially unveiled the Billy Box Turtle Aqua Spout” said Supervisor Reilich. “Stop by this summer to say hello to Billy Box Turtle at the WOW Zone! While you’re cooling off, be sure to check out the other new addition to our WOW Zone: a lion slide!”

Supervisor Reilich announced today that the Town Clerk’s Department will continue with the scheduling of appointments for customers seeking their hunting and/or fishing licenses.

“After the positive feedback received last year from our customers and its overall success, we are going to continue with the appointment opportunity for the upcoming 2021 Hunting and Fishing season beginning on August 2nd.  It is truly about personalized service and the pre-scheduling of appointments allows for the elimination of wait times by customers seeking their hunting and fishing licenses.  The town’s designated agent is free to provide this service immediately and more importantly – uninterrupted.  Since this type of transaction takes several minutes to process, the customer will be able to work directly with the agent on decisions affecting their future sporting experience without incident,” said Supervisor Reilich.

The Town Clerk’s Department will still welcome walk-ins; however, they encourage everyone to take advantage of the appointment system as heavy volumes involving other town services will increase within the next couple of months. 

Residents interested in obtaining their license are asked to contact our Town Clerk’s office at (585) 723-2389 and 723-2364 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.  Additionally, you may reach out to the Town Clerk for any questions at (585) 723-2341.

We look forward to continuing a more personalized service approach that meets the needs of convenience for our customers.

Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich is excited to announce that the Town of Greece will be publishing a local cookbook in celebration of the Town’s 200 year anniversary. This Bicentennial Cookbook will feature community recipes, and we need YOUR help in finding the best mix of recipes to include. We ask that you dig up that favorite family recipe, either new or passed down for generations, and send it in for possible inclusion in our Bicentennial Cookbook.

A few rules for submission:

When submitting recipes, please include the category (appetizer, entrée, dessert, etc.) as well as a photo of your masterpiece and, of course, the ingredients and the directions. We hope to include many special treats from kitchens throughout the town. Additionally, we will have a special section dedicated to local establishments throughout the town: Emergency Responders (does the fire department have a winning recipe?), School District Favorites, Local Restaurants, etc. If your recipe fits into one of these specialty categories, please be certain to make note of that on your submission as well.

Recipe submissions will be accepted from August 1st through October 15th, 2021. You must own the rights to any photographs submitted and recipes need to be your own or a modification of a previously published recipe (something you’ve customized).

All recipes must be submitted digitally at greeceny.gov/cookbook and the form must be completed in its entirety to be considered for inclusion in the Bicentennial Cookbook.

“We are so excited to roll out this fun community project that can be enjoyed by all” said Supervisor Reilich. “Know a great cook? Enjoy a family specialty? Help us spread the word and let’s get cooking!”

This morning, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by 3rd Ward Councilman Michael Bloomer, Judge Vince Campbell, Commissioner of Public Works Kirk Morris, Greece Town Deputy Supervisor Michelle Marini, and Greece Town Historian Keith Suhr for the official unveiling of a historic marker in the Koda Vista neighborhood. Also present for the unveiling was Neighborhood Association member Jane Grant.

The Koda Vista neighborhood consists of around 250 homes in the southeast corner of Greece with a history spanning over ninety years. The original streets were planned Kodak Employees Realty Corporation in the mid-1920s and were settled primarily by Kodak Employees. In 1928, sixty of the early residents formed Koda Vista Community Association (KVCA). The neighborhood expanded after World War II and was part of the dramatic housing and population increase experienced town-wide. The Koda Vista neighborhood is unique in its early history and the variety of architectural styles, which can still be seen today. Today is our recognition of what this neighborhood represents in our rich history and in the strength and unity of our community.

“I was proud to unveil a historic marker recognizing the historical significance of the Koda Vista neighborhood today” said Supervisor Reilich. “Special thanks to Keith Suhr for securing the grant that helped make this historic marker installation possible and to Councilman Mike Bloomer, who represents the residents of this neighborhood”.
