Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and Town of Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon are pleased to announce an additional service available for Town of Greece residents. Residents may now pay taxes via credit card at the Tax Counter located in Greece Town Hall. The Town of Greece is one of the first towns in Monroe County to offer this service to residents. 

With school tax season upon us, residents now have the option to pay their taxes via credit card. School tax season began September 1st, however because of the holiday, today is the first day to actually make the payment in person. Supervisor Reilich chose to implement this service at this time because the school tax is the largest portion of your property tax bill and he thought this would offer another option for Greece residents.

Going forward, residents will have the option to pay all of their taxes using the Town of Greece new credit card machines. Please note that there is a 3% processing charge used for all credit card transactions. This charge is the fee assessed by the bank fee and we must pass it along to residents who choose to use the credit card machine.

The new credit card machine service comes on the heels of yet another service the Town of Greece has installed for tax-paying residents. Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon would like to remind residents that they also have the option to use the night drop box to drop off their school tax checks. The Town of Greece offers this service on behalf of Greece Residents who reside in the Greece, Hilton, and Spencerport School Districts. The drop box is located outside the Service Mall area of Greece Town Hall on the right side of the doors. The purpose of this drop box is to provide residents with a fast and secure method of paying their seasonal taxes. The only form of payment that will be accepted in the drop box must be in check form. All deposits will be collected at 9am every business day by Town of Greece Tax Department Staff and the work will be processed on the previous day’s business date. Please be sure to include a payment stub with your check in order to receive a receipt. In order to ensure resident safety, a camera has been placed in the area to monitor activity. This drop box is for payment of seasonal tax only. Please note that this drop box is a service in addition to the tax services already provided by the Town of Greece. You may still pay your taxes in person or through the mail if you choose.

“This year we have established new services for our tax-paying residents” said Supervisor Reilich and Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon in a joint statement. “We are constantly looking for new and improved ways to assist residents, and are pleased to offer yet another convenient method of paying taxes”.

Greenlight Networks, an ultra-high-speed, broadband service provider, announced today that it is continuing to expand its fiber-optic network on the West side of Monroe County. Greenlight is now accepting orders in 50 new Greenlight Districts in the Town of Greece.

“We’re excited to begin the process of expanding our fiber optic network to Greece,” said Mark Murphy, president and CEO of Greenlight Networks. “With a population of almost 100,000 residents, there is a lot of opportunity for us to expand out fiber network and connect people with our service. We will be adding 20 or more employees this year to help keep up with the demand we have seen throughout the Greater Rochester area.”

Greenlight Networks fiber optic network offers internet speeds up to 50 times faster than the average American household is receiving. According to The Wall Street Journal, the addition of a fiber connection to a home can increase the home’s value up to 3%. A recent survey by the Fiber Broadband Association found that residents will pay about 8% more to rent an apartment with a fiber connection. In addition, the study found that a reliable broadband connection was listed as the most important amenity by residents when choosing an apartment or condo.

“I have been working with Greenlight Network President Mark Murphy and his staff and various department heads here in the Town of Greece for nearly 3 years to implement a plan to bring Greenlight Networks to Greece,” said William D. Reilich, Town Supervisor of Greece. “I listened when residents reached out asking if we could look into new and different services, and today I am excited to join Greenlight Networks in announcing that Greenlight will soon be available to Greece Residents”.

Greenlight worked with several departments within the Town of Greece during the construction planning process to help expedite expansion into Greece. “Since many easements and rights-of-way are owned by the Town of Greece, I anticipate that the process of bringing Greenlight to Greece will be a smooth one” said Supervisor Reilich.

Residents of Greece are now able to place their order through Greenlight’s website: GreenlightNetworks.com. The Greenlight Districts that reach their order goal fastest will be first for construction of Greenlight’s fiber-optic internet service. Greenlight expects to begin construction in several Greenlight Districts in Greece in the fourth quarter of 2018. The company now serves residential and small business customers in Brighton, East Rochester, Fairport, Henrietta, Irondequoit, Penfield, Pittsford, Rochester, Webster, and West Henrietta.

Greenlight Networks is an ultra-high-speed, broadband service provider, offering residential and small business customers Internet speeds up to a Gigabit per second (940Mbps). Based in Rochester, NY and founded in 2011, the company builds, owns and operates its fiber-optic networks to provide amazingly fast Internet connections to its customers. For more information on the company, or to sign-up for service, please visit GreenlightNetworks.com or find it on Facebook.com/GreenlightNetworks, and @GreenlightFiber on Twitter.

Supervisor Bill Reilich is pleased to announce that Greenlight Networks is coming to the Town of Greece.

Based in Rochester, New York, Greenlight Networks build their own fiber connections, which provides an extremely fast and affordable internet service.
