The East Rochester Alumni Foundation will be adding a Veteran’s Page to its website (erschools.org/alumni.cfm) on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2017. The purpose of this page will be to honor and thank current and former area residents who chose to serve and protect our country as members of one of our country’s Armed Services. This page will be updated regularly and will become a permanent part of our website.

On Saturday September 9th, Walnut Street settled and as a result the street has been closed due to safety concerns. The Department of Public Works has been working closely with Parrone Engineering, Villager Construction and Unicorn Management, who is the contractor working in the area that has settled.
A contractor for the Monroe County Water Authority will be in Town/Village tomorrow, August 22nd to begin a water main replacement project. They plan to start by replacing the water main on McKinley Street between Beechwood & Sycamore. This should be completed in around 4 days. They then plan on replacing the water main on the 500 block of West Avenue which should take another 4 days. They will be installing the new main on the north side of West Avenue which is the side of the street that everyone parks their vehicles on. Residents will have to find another area to park during the project. The Department of Public Works will be notifying the residents in order to provide them some warning. Superintendent Bill Marr has given the contractor permission to close West Avenue during the day for safety reasons. While we understand that the limited parking and closing of the road during the day may cause some residents an inconvenience, please know that the improvements are needed. If you have concerns please remember that this should only take 4 days and questions should be directed to the Water Authority by calling (585)442-2000.
Villager Construction, Inc., a contractor for the Town/Village of East Rochester will soon begin work on a project on your street that will make improvements to the existing storm infrastructure as well as replace or overlay the asphalt.

The Assessment Department maintains an inventory of all parcels in the Town/Village of East Rochester in order to establish an assessed value for the equitable distribution of property taxes. All properties are currently assessed at 100% of market value.
In accordance with rules and regulations set forth in New York State Real Property Tax Law, the Town/Village of East Rochester participates in an annual assessment program. Annual assessing involves the yearly systematic analysis of all properties in the municipality to determine if they reflect current market values and making adjustments where necessary. Assessment changes may also be made due to change in use, and/or issuance of a building permit for new construction or demolition.
The Assessment Department also administers partial tax exemptions, as allowed under the State Real Property Tax Law, to property owners who meet certain eligibility requirements. Some of the most common residential exemptions are: STAR (School Tax Relief), Senior Citizen, Disability With Limited Income and Veterans. Applications are available for these exemptions through the New York State Office of Real Property Services web site, http://www.orps.state.ny.us, or by contacting the Assessment Office at 585-381-5151.
