Earth Day / Arbor Day Celebration
All are welcome to join the Village of Honeoye Falls in their combined Earth Day and Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday April 22. The Village Conservation Board, in conjunction with the Village Tactical Urbanism Group will be constructing two temporary parklets. These projects will demonstrate what could be permanently done to enhance the Village’s quaint environment. The projects will transform two parking spots in the lot adjacent to the Mendon Town Hall and improve the green space across the street at the intersection of West Main and Norton Street..
Enhancing our environment will not only improve the visual appeal of our village, but will also demonstrate how plants and planting areas provide unseen benefits. These include providing oxygen, absorbing carbon dioxide, slowing storm water runoff and recharging the groundwater aquifers..
There will be a Sapling Giveaway starting at Noon, followed by an Arbor Day Observance and Proclamation at 1:00 p.m. with Mayor Milne.
Happy Arbor Day / Earth Day to everyone! If you cannot join in and help out, then consider doing something in your own environment to help the Earth..
A View of The Falls
Rick Milne, Mayor-Honeoye Falls
The Village of Honeoye Falls Board of Trustees along with village staff have been working over the past 3 months on reviewing the village budget. As it is each year this review includes working with our emergency services departments as well as the Highway/DPW along with gathering projections from outside sources which aids the village board in determining the financial requirements for the upcoming year, but equally important projecting future needs of the village both financially and for specific needs.
Three budget workshops (open to the public) were scheduled and completed. The budget is finished and prepared for public hearing scheduled for April 3, 2017 @ 6:00 PM. This public hearing precedes the Annual Meeting which is scheduled for 6:30 PM.
While the Village continues to be fairly healthy financially; costs continue to rise specifically within our health care, workers comp. and retirement areas. We have had to decrease the amount of funding that we have traditionally put into capital reserves which is concerning as that often means we will have to finance more equipment purchases rather than paying at time of purchase
The proposed village budget is available at the Village Office for review. At this time, there is a projected 5.42% tax rate increase which will be used to offset the projected budget shortfalls. This does not include any planned capital savings additions. The stipend for the Village Mayor, currently the lowest in Monroe County, as well as the Village Trustees was not increased. (The proposed increase on average would increase the tax payment on a property assessed at $150,000. by $16.62. The increase to a property assessed at $200,000. would increase by $22.16.)
Questions regarding the Village Budget may be directed to the Village Office @ 624-1711 or the Mayor at (email@example.com) and may be reviewed at the Village Office as well. As a reminder, the public hearing to approve the village budget is Monday, April 3rd at 6:00 PM.

STORM AND POWER OUTAGE
Residents of Honeoye Falls and Mendon. The Town of Mendon and Village of Honeoye Falls are working together to support our residents during this latest storm/wind damage and power outage event. The Town of Mendon will be opening the Mendon Community Center on North Main Street this weekend as a "warming center". Today it will be open from 1-9 PM; it will also be open 8 AM - 9 PM both Saturday and Sunday. We appreciate Supervisor Moffitt taking the lead on this location. ... There are no overnight accomodations. The Town is also facilitating a generator loan program for Mendon residents. (One resident to another) The Town of Mendon will not be providing any hook-ups for personal generators. The Town of Mendon Office number is (624-6060) for more information.
The Village of Honeoye Falls is also working on the potential of using the Presbyterian Church facility, Episcopal Church and others if needed. Pinehurst Senior Living Center has also offered support and we will post their availability if needed.
We want to use the community center as our primary center at this time and will look to the others if needed.
Please check on your neighbors, if you know of someone that needs medical support - please call 911. National Grid and RG&E are working hard to get all power back to our residents and businesses. There is a possibility that some who have power now, could lose power as lines are shut down for repair. Please try to be prepared for more outtages as this takes place.
Further information will be posted as it becomes available. The Village Office number is 624-1711 or Mayor Milne at (202-7190) if you have further questions.
