Press release

Congressman Chris Collins and local Farm Bureau presidents applauded the Trump Administration’s decision to either rescind or revise the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Obama administration.

“This rule was an example of reckless government overreach, that brought undue burdens to farmers in Western New York,” Collins said. “I was proud to lead the bipartisan effort in Congress to scrap the WOTUS rule and applaud President Trump and Administrator Pruitt for taking this common sense step to support our nation’s agriculture industry.”

Both Collins and Farm Bureaus located within New York’s 27th Congressional District have been vocal in their opposition to the WOTUS rule. In May 2014, Collins led a bipartisan letter signed by more than 200 members of Congress to former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Department of the Army Secretary John McHugh outlining concerns related to this rule. Collins believed the WOTUS rule was “built on incomplete scientific study and a flawed economic analysis” and formally requested the rule be returned to their respective agencies.

“Today’s announcement is a win for New York’s agricultural community. Wyoming County is a top agricultural producer in New York State and the repeal of WOTUS will help ensure the future of farming in Western New York,” said Jeremy Northup, president of the Wyoming County Farm Bureau. “We commend Congressman Collins for his aggressive efforts to repeal WOTUS and will continue to work with him on the issues important to Wyoming County family farms.”

“The WOTUS rule was an overreach since it was first proposed and we’ve seen the negative impact it has had and would continue to have on our local agriculture industry,” said Christian Yunker, president of the Genesee County Farm Bureau. “In the end, common sense prevailed and everyone’s hard work has paid off. I appreciate all of Congressman Collins efforts—this is fantastic news for all of agriculture, not just here in Genesee County.”

“Today’s announcement is great news for Ontario County agriculture and will help to protect the future of our region’s family farms,” said Lisa Grefrath, president of the Ontario County Farm Bureau. “We commend Congressman Collins for his efforts to repeal this burdensome mandate and look forward to continuing to work with him on the issues impacting local family farms.”

“For the last three years, we have worked with Congressman Collins to end this unfair federal overreach and protect local farms. Today’s announcement is exciting news for local farm families,” said Joe Swyers, president of the Livingston County Farm Bureau. “We will continue to work with Rep. Collins regarding protecting the future of family farms in Livingston County and appreciate his efforts to end WOTUS. No one cares about more about our environment than local farmers that make their living on our land and we will continue to be the best stewards possible.”

The State of New York takes great pride in recognizing those individuals who have distinguished themselves professionally by substantially contributing to the safety and well-being of their community, read Assemblyman David DiPietro from a proclamation earlier today in Attica. Three Attica Police officers were recognized by DiPietro for their actions on three different dates that saved the lives of three fellow village residents. 

In recognition of their heroic actions, Attica Police Chief Dean Hendershott recommended the officers for the Medal of Valor award – one of the highest awards of service for the Department. Although the awards were given to the officers earlier this year in a ceremony held in the Village office, DiPietro says he personally wanted to recognize the two men and one woman.

On the evening of Oct. 23, Officer Stephanie A. Ingles, an eight-year veteran of the Attica PD, responded to a reported unresponsive individual with a suspected drug overdose. She was on the scene in under a minute and was advised that CPR instructions were being conveyed over the phone to a person inside the home.

At great personal risk to herself without backup available, the proclamation stated, she grabbed her CPR equipment and located the victim unresponsive on the kitchen floor. 

Ingles continued CPR and assisted the Attica Fire Department and EMS when they arrived to use the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and administer Naloxone to revive the victim. 

If not for her swift response and quick thinking, the victim would not be alive today, read DiPietro. This victim is incredibly grateful for the efforts of Ingles to save his life, he continued.

James E. Prusak Jr. joined the Attica PD 18 months ago. On the evening of May 13, 2016, he was beginning his overnight patrol shift when he received a dispatch call reporting an individual attempting suicide after a domestic dispute. He began a search for the subject and upon locating the person, discovered he was not breathing. He called for EMS assistance and successfully administered CPR, which allowed the victim to begin breathing on his own before EMS arrived. 

Karl E. Zufall, a two-year veteran of the Attica PD, received word of an urgent dispatch call for EMS assistance Sept. 4 for a severe leg laceration. Although outside of his patrol jurisdiction, he responded to the location to render additional assistance, given the severity of the injury. 

When he arrived on scene, he found an elderly man lying on the steps of his garage – a trailer hitch fell from his vehicle, causing the severe laceration and heavy bleeding. Zufall applied a pressure dressing to attempt to stem the bleeding. When the victim stopped breathing, he carried the man down the stairs and administered CPR. The victim began breathing on his own and was taken to Wyoming County Community Hospital. 

Although the gentleman succumbed to his injuries a week later, the swift response and quick thinking of Zufall saved his life that day, giving the victim’s family members an opportunity to be with him to say goodbye when the time came, DiPietro said.

“All three officers embody the true calling of a rural police officer who is ready at a moment's notice to come to the assistance of community residents.”

Beginning on or about July 1, New York State will be implementing Paid Family Leave (PFL) coverage under the disability policy all employers must carry. According to the New York State website, the premium will be fully funded by employees through payroll deductions. 

The key difference between Disability Leave (DBL) and PFL is DBL can only be taken for the employee’s own injury or illness, while PFL can be taken to care for someone else, for example, a child or parent or after the birth of a child.

“The employer may choose to pay the insurance on the employee’s behalf, but that is a choice,” said Wyoming County Chamber President Scott Gardner. “It will affect all businesses who have employees and anyone who is an employee.”

Employers will be required to purchase a PFL insurance policy or self-insure. While both benefits premiums are paid by the employer, the employer has the option to recoup the cost through employee contributions. However, contributions are capped at the state-set maximum level – $.60 per week under DBL and .126 percent capped at the current average weekly wage of $1,305.92 under PFL. The wage under PFL is determined each year by Sept. 30 by the Department of Financial Services.

“Businesses must comply with the new regulations or be subject to penalties, claim costs, and fines. While the employee will be contributing to the policy, it is up to the employer to contact their disability insurance provider and put a policy in place. Additionally, the employer will have to establish a protocol for deducting the calculated contributions from the employees.”

Key differences between DBL and PFL include:

    • Full-time employees: Under DBL – a person working the specific employer’s normal work week and worked at lease four consecutive weeks for any covered employer(s). Under PFL – persons working 20 or more hours a week and employed at least 26 consecutive weeks at their current employer. 

    • Part-time employees: DBL – completed at least 25 work days at any covered employer(s). PFL – completed at least 175 work days at their current employer.

    • DBL will pay 50 percent of the average weekly wage (maximum $170 per week). PFL provides 50 percent of the average weekly wage capped at 50 percent in 2018 and gradually increased to up to 67 percent (capped at 67 percent once fully implemented in 2021).

    • While there is a seven-day waiting period before DBL benefits kick in, PFL benefits kick in on the first day of the qualified leave. Also, DBL will cover 26 weeks in a consecutive 52-week period, while PFL will cover eight weeks beginning in 2018, increasing to a maximum of 12 weeks in 2021. 

DBL and PFL benefits cannot be received concurrently, they have to be taken consecutively. However, if an employee qualifies for both benefits, the combined duration may not exceed 26 weeks in a consecutive 52-week period. 

    • There is no job protection when an employee is out on DBL leave. When an employee returns from PFL, an employer must provide the same, or comparable, position in wages and benefits.

“It is another regulatory burden on businesses large and small. The other issue for businesses with Paid Family Leave is when an employee takes the time for up to 12 weeks, the employer must hold the job for the employee. This leaves the employer in a very difficult position with regard to business performance. While they could hire temporary employees, not all employees can be easily replaced temporarily. In the end it could cost the business in productivity and other costs.”

State officials say employers should contact their current New York Disability Benefits carrier to learn more about adding Paid Family Leave coverage. If you renew or start New York State Disability Benefits in 2017, benefits won't start any earlier than Jan. 1.

Service improvements to the Regional Transit Service (RTS) in both Wyoming and Genesee counties will be implemented beginning today. The improvements stem from the Regional Service Efficiency Study conducted in 2016.

“These improvements to our transit system are a direct result of the engagement and feedback from customers and stakeholders in these respective communities, and months of hard work from the RTS team,” said RTS CEO Bill Carpenter. “We encourage our customers to provide input on the new changes in the coming days and weeks to help us ensure the most efficient operation possible.”  

The improvements are as follows:

RTS Wyoming County

The biggest change for public transit customers in Wyoming County is the new connections from Arcade and Warsaw to Attica and Batavia on weekdays. 

Other changes include:

    •  an added midday service to Warsaw Deviated Fixed Route;

    • extended hours on all routes, and;

    • retained most current services with the benefit of less ride time and less wait time between routes.

Following are the links to the new RTS Wyoming County route maps:

    •  RTS Wyoming Routes 221 Warsaw and 222 Arcade to Batavia

    • RTS Wyoming Routes 223 Arcade Commuter and  224 Warsaw to Arcade

    • RTS Wyoming Routes 225 SASI;  226 Warsaw, Pike, Castile, Silver Springs; 227 Warsaw to Perry; 228 Warsaw to Wyoming

    • RTS Wyoming Route 229 Attica to Warsaw

RTS Genesee County

Routes 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be renamed 211, 212, 213 and 214. Aside from the renaming of the routes, the biggest changes include the addition of service on Saturdays, connections to Orleans and Wyoming counties, and the creation of a Countywide Runner. 

Improvements are as follows:

    • retained a good portion of current route system (routes 211 and 212);

    • Route 212 will begin earlier in the morning to continue service to the Middle/High School and create additional opportunity for rides to work;

    • added transportation to Big Tree Glen 10 times a day, Monday through Friday;

    • integrated the early morning Genesee Community College (GCC) run into current routes and added additional transportation for a total of six trips to GCC;

    • added a midday service run to Le Roy;

    • added Saturday service;

    • now connect with Orleans and Wyoming counties at K-Mart on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:55 a.m., 11:55 a.m. and 2:55 p.m., and;

    • merged the Dial-A-Ride and Countywide service to create a Countywide Runner. This countywide service is available Monday through Friday to anywhere in the county not within three-quarter miles of the route. This service will focus on countywide and medical appointments.

Following are the links to the new RTS Genesee County route maps:

    • RTS Genesee Routes 210 & 211

    • RTS Genesee Routes 212 & 213

    • RTS Genesee Route 214

In 2016, RTS studied its services in Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, and Wyoming counties to identify service improvements and connections across counties. The improvements that are being rolled out this year were informed by the input provided by customers and stakeholders in each county.

RTS is a regional transit authority established by New York State which serves customers and business partners in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, and Wyoming counties. For more information, visit www.myRTS.com.

Perry Public Library personnel remind parents to watch out for the summer slide. No, it is not the latest new ride at an amusement park, it is what educators call the loss that children may experience over a summer without books. 

Research shows that students who participate in summer reading programs at public libraries returned to school ready to learn, with improved reading achievement and skills. Even if children are avid readers, some parents indicate summer is the most difficult time to find productive things for kids to do. Perry Public Library, Read Around Perry, and the Perry Family Literacy Center are offering free programs for children of all ages.

Some highlights include: 

    • Live animals from the Buffalo Zoo will visit the library;

    • Representatives from the Buffalo Museum of Science will let children examine ancient fossils;

    • Preschool Story times are offered every week, along with afternoon movie matinees and craft programs;

    • Young adults are invited to an Escape Room challenge and creating art with duct tape; and

    • Perry children will be able to experiment with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) materials such as Ozobots, Little Bits, Snap circuits, LEGO bricks and other items. The STEAM materials were a gift from the library’s Tuesday Club.

Again this summer Perry Public Library is providing lunch from BOCES, free for any child from birth through 18 years old. The lunches will be held at noon Monday through Thursday July 10 through Aug. 10.

The Perry Family Literacy Center has teamed up with the Perry Public Library from July 10 through  Aug 10 to provide free game-based tutoring in literacy, oral language and STEM. The program will be held at the library from 2 to 4 p.m. Mondays, 10 a.m. to noon Tuesdays, and from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursdays. All preschool through third-grade students are welcome to attend. Library administrators request that a parent or guardian (13 years old or older) stay with children throughout their tutoring. Registration is not required, and children may attend as many times as their schedule allows.

Events at the Perry Farmers’ Market

On Saturday July 8 at the Chalk Art Festival, children are invited to read books from a selection at the RAP and Perry Family Literacy Center tent starting at 9 a.m.. Readers will receive one ticket to enter the raffle for each step that they read throughout the day. Raffle prizes include new books, literacy games, and more. The grand prize (a tablet computer) will be drawn at noon.

The theme of winning will continue with RAP at the Farmers’ Market on Aug.19 for the library’s final summer event, Readers and Writers are Winners. Children who visit the RAP tent will have a chance to talk or write about their summer.

For more information on Perry Public Library activities, call Children’s Librarian Janet Rossman at (585) 237-2243. For Perry Family Literacy Center information, contact Marcie Monegro at (585) 507-7095. To learn more about RAP, visit readaroundperry.weebly.com
