Senator Gillibrand talking about Internet affordability (file photo)

On April 16, 2021, then Governor Cuomo signed the Affordable Broadband Act into law, which meant a low-income $15/month Internet cost would be mandated. The state was sued by various lobbying and trade groups, citing that the state can’t regulate Internet providers because the Federal Communications Commission is the only authority that could do so. Well, the state lost in district court so the mandate was never implemented. However, New York State appealed that decision in the court of appeals, which reversed the district court, allowing the law to take effect. Now we wait to find out if attempts will be made to appeal that ruling. Meanwhile, full-price broadband bills will continue to arrive


Batavia city firefighters will continue flushing hydrants next week. They’ll be working in the general area of north of Main Street and West of Bank Street from approximately 9:00am until 3:00pm, from Tuesday May 7th through Thursday, the 9th. They anticipate homes and businesses nearby will be affected. The tests may result in a temporary discoloration of water in that area.

If you have questions, or notice a hydrant in need of repair, contact the Fire Department at 345-6375.


Police body cam screen capture of Sandra Doorley.

The chief of the Webster Police Department has put out a statement about a recent traffic stop involving Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley. Doorley has admitted to going 55 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone and not stopping until she got to her home. Body camera footage showed that Doorley was contentious with the officer, something she has apologized for. In the statement, Chief Kolheimer praised the officer for handling this case with professionalism. And Doorley was the main subject of public comment at their Town Board Meeting last night. Residents expressed concern that she be held accountable and an investigation be completed into how the police department handed the traffic stop. Some also questioned why she was able to enter her home at all when she was approached by police. The New York State Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct and the Monroe County Office of Public Integrity, alongside the Board of Ethics, is conducting an investigation.
