Do not forget that even in the winter you can drop off household trash every Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. until 12 noon at WilliamSUN Solar field on Pound Road. K & D Disposal conducts the drop-off charging only $.10 a pound.   There is no charge for recycling materials as long as you are dropping off garbage.    Otherwise, if recyclable materials only, it is $.10 a pound.  You can drop off cardboard for free even if not dropping off garbage.

Also, if you see a street light out on any highway in Williamson please contact Valarie Fowler at 589-2038.   She will ensure that it is reported to Rochester Gas & Electric and hopefully repaired promptly.  You can also contact Valarie by emailing at her at:

The last Town Board meeting this year was on Tuesday, December 22nd.   This was my last Board meeting in local government for my career as I am retiring at the end of this year.

Tony Verno will be the Town Supervisor on January 1st.  Tony has been on the Town Board for 16 years, is well qualified for this position and will do a great job.

Replacing Tony on the Board is Nancy Gowan. Nancy recently retired as a Corrections Officer at the Wayne County Jail. She has a lot of enthusiasm and will no doubt add a lot to the Town Board.

I would like to thank all the members of the Town Board – Tony Verno, Gary Orbaker, Mike Bixby and Tom Watson – for the job they do as elected officials. They take their jobs seriously, are true professionals and really care about our town.

I would like to thank the other elected officials – Town Clerk Marlene Gulick, Superintendent of Highways Kurt Allman and both Town Justices – Barry Van Nostrand and Deb Stritzel – as well as the town work force for all they do. It was great to work with all of them.

I would also like to thank the many volunteers who serve on the town committees that make Williamson a wonderful place to live.

Being a Town Supervisor has been a very rewarding experience for which I am most grateful. There have been many changes over the years, most of which I think were for the best.

Thanks to all of you who have supported me and helped make our town move forward.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
