102nd Birthday Celebration

Wednesday, 22 March 2017 05:33


Mayor Nancy Steedman was invited to honor Derna Siebel who turned 102 years old on March 19, 2017.  Derna was born in Rochester and now resides at the Legacy Parklands in Chili.  Mayor Nancy presented her with a certificate of recognition from the Village Board and a bouquet of flowers.  As soon as she was old enough, Derna took odd jobs ironing and cleaning.  When the war started, she went to work at Clapp’s Baby Food on Mount Read Boulevard.  With most of the working-age men at war, she worked alongside many women packing and loading baby food for shipping.  Later, she was hired by Kodak as a Floor Manager coordinating the team producing missiles.  Derna was a dedicated Kodak employee for nearly 35 years.  It’s been 40 years since her retirement.  So she has now been retired 5 years longer than she worked there!  Derna is an amazing woman and I feel honored to have been included in her birthday celebration.

Wind Storm Power Outage 2017

Wind Storm Power Outage 2017

Ed Rivers and Adam Hettis return after mutual aid to RG&E in the Rochester area.

Please join me in thanking the Churchville Municipal Electric crew for the great job they did restoring our power.  They worked non-stop fixing wires, downed trees and poles in our village.  And thanks to the village office staff who stayed beyond hours to answer phones.

The village restoration was completed in about 3 hours’ time…but, we still did not have lights on due to the feed from National Grid being disrupted.

Remember, the Village of Churchville distributes the power to our residents within the village limits.  But, that power comes to us from outside of the village via National Grid.  A large tree had brought down the National Grid line that feeds Churchville.

We are fortunate that we have two different power lines that come to the village from National Grid.  Through the diligent work by DPW Superintendent Paul Robinson, the National Grid problem was located and a plan to reroute power to the village was devised.  I made a phone call to Tony Modafferi, Executive Director of the Municipal Electric Utility Association (MEUA), and National Grid sent a team to meet with Paul.  By 3:45pm on Thursday the power feed was restored to the village substation.  We had been without power for a total of about 24 hours.

Once we had power to our substation, we could then power up the village and we did so in three phases to ensure that everyone was brought power safely and successfully.  That whole process only took a half hour.

The Village crew had a lot to do while we waited for National Grid to connect us.  The crew was able to remove trees and branches from the roads and sidewalks.  Two utility poles that were broken were replaced and the distribution system was inspected to ensure service to all our customers would be restored smoothly and safely.

On Friday, after we had our power restored, mutual aid was called by the MEUA.  Churchville sent a bucket truck and two linemen in response to this mutual aid to help restore power with RG&E in the Rochester area.  On Sunday the snow started to fall and made the power restoration efforts more challenging with the wild weather and snow accumulation.  Our electric crew did not return until Thursday, March 16th.  The MEUA had 45 linemen from 17 villages in NYS helping restore power in the Monroe County area.

Even though we were without power for 24 hours, we were so lucky that it was during warmer temperatures.  And we are so lucky that it was restored in a timely fashion.  My hat is off to DPW Superintendent Paul Robinson, Village Clerk Meghan Lodge and all of our Village of Churchville employees!  A job well done!!

Mayors for Meals on Wheels

Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:04

Mayor Nancy Steedman participated in the Mayors for Meals on Wheels on March 21, 2012. She joined other Mayors and Town Supervisors from Monroe County by touring the facility on Prince Street in Rochester. Then the elected officials donned aprons, hair nets and rubber gloves to assist in filling containers of food for delivery. Mayor Nancy joined with Town of Chili Supervisor, Dave Dunning to deliver meals to several residents in the area. This is a service provided to our residents that is beneficial in many ways. The organization and volunteers should be commended for their work in making this program so successful.



Mayor Nancy Meets with County Legislator, Jeff Adair

Monday, 13 February 2012 13:07

Mayor Nancy was invited by Monroe County Legislator, Jeff Adair, for a meeting and tour of the County Legislative Chambers in Rochester on Tuesday, February 07, 2012. Jeff Adair is the Village of Churchville and the Town of Riga’s new County Legislator, and he also serves as the President of the Monroe County Legislature.

The tour was most informative, allowing me to learn more about the County Legislature and Jeff Adair. Before becoming a County Legislator, Jeff was the Town Supervisor for Wheatland. During the last November elections, the legislative districts were redrawn that resulted in a change of our representative from Robert Colby to Jeff Adair.

A busy man with many responsibilities, I found him to be most personable and interesting. He has a deep interest in the communities that he represents and is willing to be of help whenever needed. I am sure that Legislator Jeff will be attending many of our community events this year. So, watch for him in our community and do take the time to introduce yourself and welcome him.
