Homer Rec Cheerleaders came in first place in the Youth Football Cheer competition Saturday in Trumansburgh!
Anyone who has ever moved knows that there are always hiccups… Our move is no different. 🙂
We are now at 31 North Main Street, but our phones are not. We understand that this is an issue and we apologize for all of the inconveniences associated with it. We are hoping that the powers that be (the phone company) will clear up this problem ASAP. In the meantime, come in and see us at the office.
So, we have moved… well, sort of 🙂
We do have some of our Village staff in the offices at Town Hal; but due to connectivity problems (our computers don’t work there yet) , all business will still take place at 53 South Main. We are hoping that the issue will be resolved by the end of next week. Thank you for you patience as we iron out the kinks!
Starting Monday, October 2nd, you can find the Village of Homer Office back at the Town Hall, located at 31 North Main Street.

10. Executive Session
The Village of Homer is working with MEGA to explore a new program called Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). You and your neighbors increase your individual buying power through a group purchase of electricity.
As a participant in MEGA’s CCA you may:
-save money on your electric bill
-avoid sudden spikes in the price of your electricity
-stop energy telemarketers and door-to- door sales
-get access to renewable ‘green’ energy
Even after our community joins MEGA’s CCA you have the choice to opt-out and stay with the utility for electric supply. There are also opportunities for customers to opt-in to the CCA Program. While we do not know the exact price for electricity through the CCA, we will know the price before we must decide if we will continue our participation in the CCA Program.
To learn more please visit megacca.org and join us at a public education session at the Community Building: Wednesday, September 27 th 6-7:30pm. Feel free to bring your electric bill.
Questions can be directed to MEGA’s CCA team at megaCCAteam@energynext.com or 518.533.5399.
If you have questions specific to the Village of Homer you should contact Mayor Hal McCabe, the CCA Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607.749.3322.
MEGA, is a not-for- profit local development corporation who serves 35 counties and 240 other municipalities, school districts and small businesses across New York State.
