Rochester Regional Health has made the decision to close the Batavia Urgent Care at the Jerome Medical Center, which will take effective August 1. This is in preparation to offer what they are referring to as re-imagined urgent care services in the Batavia Medical Campus on Oak Orchard Road, opening in the spring of 2023. Every staff member from Batavia Urgent Care is moving into another position within their system while the organization works through the Urgent Care redesign. In the coming days and weeks, patients will receive letters with more information and there will be new signs at the Batavia Urgent Care site about the changes. Primary care offices remain open, and providers aware of the changes ahead are prepared to see any patients with urgent needs.


Public Works Director Brett Frank tells us that the second phase of the roof replacement is just the beginning of the revitalization of the City Centre Mall. The vision for the mall is to have the entrances completely redone and once they are made more attractive and the water buckets inside are gone they hope more people will want to come in and more stores will want to set up shop inside. Money for the entrance project is coming from a 1 million dollar downtown revitalization initiative grant.

Matt Landers

The Genesee County Chamber of Commerce will be a few dollars short for the new branding initiative the former president had proposed. The county’s Ways and Means Committee voted this week to rescind the $139,500 advance payment due to a material change in the original proposal, which had been requested by Erik Fix. Shortly after, Fix resigned his position. He had initially requested $240,000 from the county to establish a branding initiative that would meet American Rescue Plan Act requirements, which were intended to help businesses and organizations that lost revenues due to the pandemic. County Manager Matt Landers said that due to the change in terms from the chamber, county legislators and he agreed to terminate the contract. Decreasing expenses in the amount of $139,500 will amend the budget, to be offset by a decrease in federal aid in the same amount.


Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is calling on federal agencies to investigate airline practices. The New York Democrat wrote a joint letter to the Department of Transportation and Federal Trade Commission to request that they review whether airlines are engaging in unfair or deceptive business practices. Gillibrand says more flights were canceled in June of 2022 in the United States than any other June in previous years, while other customers dealt with severe delays and lost luggage. Some airlines are also accused of scheduling flights they know can’t be staffed.


Drought Report – from 13 WHAM

Most of our region saw a beneficial rain on Monday that dropped nearly 1″ of rain in many areas. The rain helped, but our rainfall deficit for the month of July is still nearly 1″ and for the year most of the region is 3-4″ below normal. During a more typical season, that’s about a month’s worth of precipitation.
