Village Board of Trustees Meet – Discuss 2024 Priorities


Last night the Village of Homer Board of Trustees met at the Homer Town Hall, before the meeting began though, Deputy Mayor Pat Clune asked for a moment of silence to honor former Village of Homer Police Chief David Sampson. Sampson died on December 30th at the age of 77. He served as Chief of the Homer Police Department for 13 years before retiring in 1998.

During the meeting the Village of Homer discussed the village’s priorities for 2024. Some of the top items on the list included the Route 11 Linear Park, Digital Sign law, the Downtown Revitalization Initiative, and the Stop Sign on Hooker Ave.

The Route 11 Linear Park was listed as number one as the Village of Homer currently has around $280,000 tied into reimbursements for the project. Once the project is completed and the reimbursements are given, the village will be able to use the nearly $300k towards other projects.

Another priority that was brought up is the continuation of the village’s sidewalk project. This year looks to be the last year allowed by the grant and the village looks to hire temporary workers to assist the DPW in the sidewalk work. Additionally, for street paving, some streets look to be contracted out to relieve the workload on the DPW this Spring and Summer.
