On August 2, 2022, the Village of Homer will participate in the 39th annual National Night Out. National Night Out promotes police-community partnerships, crime, drug, and violence prevention, safety, and neighborhood unity. The Village of Homer has decided to include all first responder agencies in the Cortland County area, as it takes more than one department for a community to be safe.



The event will be held on the Village Green between 4pm and 9pm. National Night Out’s theme this year is “Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party.” As such, the Village will be hosting a family-oriented party with various competitions along with a live band.

To the Residents of the Town and Village of Homer,


As your elected representatives, we felt it was important to reassure all of you that during this global crisis, all politics have been put aside.


We are working closely together, all of us, to help ensure your safety and to make sure services continue as uninterrupted as possible. By working closely together, these three distinct levels of local government can focus on several aspects of life during this trying time.


Your County Legislators are working hard to increase outreach and services from the health department, department of the aging, and the department of social services, among many others, as well as helping to guide the county through a troubling financial crisis as a result of the NY PAUSE act.


The Town of Homer highway crew is staying busy cleaning ditches, cleaning up the road sand, and taking care of all necessary work for the Town to function as normal.


And at the Village of Homer, we are ensuring that our first responders in the Homer Police Department and the Homer Fire Department remain healthy as they respond to ever-increasing numbers of calls. We are taking exceptional care to make sure that our water and sewer department certified operators are healthy so that those services continue without interruption. We are doing our best to provide as many other services as possible while being careful to keep our employees safe. Finally, we have waived all late fees and interest on late water bills and Village of Homer taxes through June 30, at which point we may extend that period.


We stand together today, united, determined, and resolute – to work for you and your best interests. This is no time for politics. This is a time for caring and compassion – that is our pledge to you. We are all in this together, and together, we are strong enough to make it through.
