Michael Barker                                                                           SUPERVISOR'S REPORT
                   by
      Perinton Supervisor

Greetings!  In November, I was honored to be selected by the Town Board to finish out the term of retiring Supervisor Mike Barker.  I have known Mike for many years (41 years to be exact) and throughout this time his passion and gift for teaching have been clearly evident.  When the opportunity to return to teaching arose, Mike, understandably, took it.  I would like to thank Mike for his years of service to our community through public office.  From his time on the Fairport Village Board, Town Board, and County Legislature, and ending with the last five years in the Supervisor’s office, Mike has truly been a dedicated public servant.  I am not alone in my appreciation of this commitment and hard work...from all of us – Thanks Mike!

What a terrific summer and early fall we had in the Town of Perinton!  We kicked off the summer in early June with our 17th Annual Fishing Derby at Perinton Park.   July brought the annual Fourth of July Party at the Park as well as the kick-off for our many, popular Summer Youth Camps and Skill Development Camps.  Stellar musical acts and great weather made for record attendance Sunday nights at the Center Stage at Center Park Concert Series.  This free concert series has been growing in popularity as a fun, family-friendly activity every Sunday night, throughout the summer.  In late summer and early fall we had the Youth Triathlon, Outdoor Movie Night and the Halloween Parade.

In our Department of Public Works, we welcomed a new Commissioner in August.  Jason Kennedy, a Perinton resident who previously served as the Deputy Director of Environmental Services for Monroe County, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the department.  Jason jumped right in to a busy schedule of road repair/maintenance, weekly brush pick-up and on-going sidewalk and sewer projects.  I look forward to working with Jason as we head into snow plowing season.

I would also like to take a moment to thank all of our local fire, Emergency Medical Service, police department and sheriff deputies for their tireless dedication to keeping our community a safe and wonderful place to live and raise a family.  Every day, regardless of conditions, we depend on them to perform their duties at the highest level, and every day they come through.  I thank them for that.

I am very excited to serve the town in this new capacity.  I have enjoyed being a member of the town board for the past several years and look forward to this new and exciting challenge.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to stop by, call or email any time or visit our website at www.perinton.org. My phone number is (585) 223-0770 and my email is channa@perinton.org. I look forward to hearing from you. 

                                                Sincerely,

                                                Ciaran Hanna, Perinton Supervisor
