Perinton Community Discussion / A new era in education?
« Last post by Michael Caswell on March 27, 2020, 06:09:17 pm »

By encouraging 'learn at home' we could cut down an incredible amount of expenditure on our school budget, which is a major drain on our property taxes. Less buses, less building maintenance, less heating bills. etc.etc.

What is Learn At Home?  In response to area school closings, WXXI-TV is broadcasting a grade level “Learn At Home” schedule from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. WXXI Kids 24/7 channel will remain the same with PBS KIDS favorites for our youngest viewers.

WXXI Education has curated and created resources, virtual events and hands-on activities in support of educators, students, and families posted on this site, in social media and e-newsletters.

And you'd probably get suckered like I was. $4000 the first year, 11 years later almost $16000. No wonder retired folks on a fixed income have to leave their homes.

Exactly gentlemen, precisely why my wife and I wouldn't even consider moving into one of the villages. We would love to be closer to the canal and other amenities, but at what cost?

This is a point that some people seem to miss.

And folks, it's not just about the fact we are paying too'a also about the fact that we are paying for "poor" leadership in the Village system. When you compare salaries for the SAME types of services provided by the local TOWN. It's like day and night in many cases.

Go and read this posting showing other examples where local town government seems to be running much better than villages within those towns.
This is an interesting look at the problem of redundant local government in New York State, from the DIRECT cost to taxpayers...Village & Town salaries

You see in the end it's about how efficient a government can be, and in NY, the State can mandate that efficiency down to the Town level. State - County - Town are the officially" approved local governments according to the NY GRACE Laws, Government Reorganization And Citizen Empowerment.

Here's how a Town and Village compare that are located west of Rochester

TOWN of Sweden

VILLAGE of Brockport

Now you might think I've tried to pull an example that supports my statement. So I'll show another one.

Here's a comparison of a Town & Village from the EAST side of Rochester, it's pretty much the same... shows how the Town had figured out how to run efficiently, while the Village goes along it's merry way at the expense of Village Taxpayers that foot the bill for "expensive & inefficient" Villager Leadership

TOWN of Perinton

VILLAGE of Fairport

Well , have you seen enough? Would you like to see more?


If you are TIRED of living in a Village along the Erie Canal, or ANYWHERE in New York State, and paying EXTRA taxes for what appears to be ineffective, inefficient, and unnecessary, redundant local Village Government it's time to act, time to let your voice be heard... go to our website and join the fight.

The ECNA got a call today from Mr. Schwartz of CHA Associates, the company that is planning the privacy barrier screening for the original Embankment Restoration Project. He explained that the barrier work, slated to start in April 2020 has now been pushed back due to issues with Covid-19 work restrictions.

There is no set date when they plan to start work, it is fluid as the virus continues to change plans almost daily now.

We will post the start date when we receive it, hang in there Western Section Canal Neighbors..privacy is on it's way soon..
