  1. The next meetings of the Conesus Town Board will be held on June 4 and June 18, 2019.
  2. The NYS Department of Taxation and Finance has notified the Town of Conesus that our assessor has met the stipulations for Cyclical Aid to Municipalities for 2018 by completing a reappraisal of the 2018 assessment roll.  While we are eligible for up to $5 per parcel (1630 parcels), the aid has been reduced to 54.03% of the maximum eligible.  We will be receiving $4403.45 from the Office of State Comptroller for payment. 
  3. The NYSDEC has notified the Town of Conesus that they will be applying an insecticide to 25 acres of Hemlock Canadice State Forest and surrounding area to combat hemlock wooly adelgid, an invasive species that is present in the area.  This invasive species is likely to kill most of the hemlock trees in our area.  This insecticide will assist in keeping the hemlock trees alive while scientists continue to work toward a long-term solution.  A negative SEQR declaration for the planned treatment was attached.

  • The Conesus Town Hall, originally called the Conesus Amusement Hall and built in 1888, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in June 2005.  Conesus Town Historian, Brenda Eddy, applied for a grant for funding of a 2x3 metal sign and post through the William G. Pomeroy Foundation to commemorate the designation on April 3, 2019.  The grant for $1100 was approved on April 30, 2019.  The next steps involve ordering the sign from Sewah Studios in Marietta, Ohio and installing the sign on the Town Hall property sometime later in 2019.


Comments are welcome at this time.
