A public drop-in session will be held at Greece Town Hall in Community Rooms A & B, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, on Tuesday September 22, 2015 to review inventory information and gather public comments on the Hojack Trail Feasibility Study. The study, which is funded by the Genesee Transportation Council, is a collaborative effort by the towns of Greece and Parma, and the village of Hilton which will study the possibility of establishing a multi-use trail on the former Hojack rail corridor, extending from the NYS Route 390 Bike Path in Greece to Canning Street in Hilton.
The drop-in session will give residents of all 3 communities an opportunity to provide input on the study and discuss the project with the advisory committee, project consultants, and representatives from Greece, Parma, and Hilton.

Supervisor Reilich announced today that the Town of Greece will be participating in the 2015 Beach Cleanup day on Saturday, September 19th from 9AM until Noon. This event is an annual cleanup of beaches all over New York State. This is one of New York State’s most important environmental events of the year, and the Town of Greece is happy to participate.
This event is part of the larger International Coastal Clean-up sponsored by the American Littoral Society (ALS). Each year this event removes trash from shorelines all over New York State; 80 tons of trash in 2014 alone. There are currently plans to have groups tend to the Payne Beach area, the Braddock Bay area, and along the lake shore. However, more volunteers are always welcome, and Supervisor Reilich would like to encourage as many folks as possible to assist in this effort.Upon registering for Beach Cleanup Day, volunteers will receive an email with further instructions on where to meet to receive assignments and supplies, as well as go over safety precautions.
Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich just received word from organizers at Slide the City that they will be unable to bring the event to the area this year. Citing legal hurdles and safety concerns handed down by New York State, they hope to work on these issues to bring the event back in 2016.
“We were absolutely disappointed to hear the event was being cancelled,” said Supervisor Reilich in a statement. “Safety has always been our number one concern, and we hope that Slide the City is able to overcome these obstacles to bring the slide to Greece in 2016.”
