Village Updates

Winter Wallop

Recently, we announced the return of a Sidewalk Snow Removal Service throughout the Village. Beginning with established school routes, then Main Street and on to other residential areas. This week’s Winter Storm Avery, however, came upon us much sooner than we could adequately implement our program. We anticipate being fully operational by 12/1/18. Our Ventrac Tractor with multi-use snowblower, blade and salt spreader should be ideally suited for Sidewalk Snow Removal duty.
Keep an eye out for the DPW Snow Removal Machine! Be safe and warm this snowy season.

Will this include the 281 corridor from high school to Hudson St Ext? No late bus for these students, they have to walk home, in the street if not plowed.

Will this include the houses on 281?

Yes, it will include the houses on 281. Anything within the Village will be taken care of.... once the machine gets here and set up!

Very Important!A reminder that there is no parking from 2am to 6am on any village street or municipal parking lot. This is to allow for easier and safer movement of snow by the village highway department. Vehicles in violation are subject to ticketing and if they are presenting a traffic hazard they will be towed. If you need parking permission please contact the police department directly at 607-749-2022.

Also with plowable snow in the forecast we remind you that snow is not to be shoveled, blown or plowed into the roadways. This is a violation of NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law and large amounts of ice and snow in the road are a hazard to motor vehicles.

Mayor Hal McCabe
I apologize for being "that guy" who recorded some things last night, but we had musical royalty in the Village of Homer, NY at the Center for the Arts of Homer.

Mr. John Hiatt, one of my top 10, probably top 5 favorite artists of all time, was here. This was my 5th time seeing him, tying him with The Grateful Dead and Ani Difranco for my most seen live acts.

He was, of course, utterly fantastic. This is one of my favorite songs of his and I was glad he played it. His new CD is one of his best ever. Highly recommend.

We are thrilled to announce this news, it has been official for nearly a year but we wanted to wait for our new engine to be ordered before we announced this.

This $150,000 is the money that was originally a grant to help the Village of Homer purchase property on James St. to build ourselves a new Village Hall.

By moving back to the Town Hall, we were able to put this $150,000 toward a much needed fire engine, thereby saving the Village $150K, plus $30K in floor planning interest.

We also saved $300,000 by not having to renovate a building, so all-in-all, we were able to save taxpayers roughly $500,000.

Thanks goes to Senator Seward and his staff, we were able to get their approval to repurpose the funds with a single phone call. They are a great partner for the Village of Homer.Local News: Senator Seward Delivers $150K To Help Buy New Homer Fire Engine. Read more here: bit.ly/2pVmoOp

Very nice to hear!!

Sounds like you still spent the taxpayers money. Any news to report with the James Street site?

Well, we spent it on a much-needed fire truck to protect them, so... yes... I guess we did. And the James St. site sold, is now the location of a long time retail business and is STILL on the tax rolls.
