The IJC made no secrect of the fact that flooding will be the norm each Spring as long as Plan 2014 remains in effect.  The Town encourages those property owners needing/using sand bags this year, to store them for future use.  To extend the life of the bags, store them where they can dry out; stack them (preferably off the ground) and completely cover them with durable black plastic, if stored in a location exposed to the sun.

SAFE Act Pistol Permit Recertification Information Meetings

Wayne County Clerk Mike Jankowski and Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts announce a series of public meetings that are intended to help answer questions and lessen uncertainty regarding the pending commencement of the SAFE Act Pistol Permit Recertification process in New York.

 

The New York SAFE Act passed on January 15, 2013 requires Pistol Permit holders to recertify their permitted handgun(s) every five years. Whether you received a letter or not, you are required to recertify your name, address and permitted handgun(s) to the New York State Police.

 

"The Safe Act requiring Pistol Permit recertification is a complicated and confusing responsibility for Wayne County Pistol Permit holders and gun owners. These sessions are an attempt to make this process as easy as possible and avoid future problems", says County Clerk Jankowski.

 

Sheriff Virts states, "The County Clerk and I feel it is important to make ourselves available to assist Pistol Permit holders and other citizens with the New York SAFE Act recertification process and take SAFE Act questions to avoid future complications or the loss of your Pistol Permit License."

Notice to Waterfront Property Owners

A reminder to all waterfront property owners in the Town of Huron:  Anything you plan to do today on or around your waterfront is most likely subject to oversight and regulatory authority which may involve the US Army Corps of Engineers, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation or other NYS Agency, or the Town of Huron Coastal Erosion or Dock and Mooring Laws.  To safeguard against the cost of having to remove or undo something for lack of proper permitting or adherence to existing regulations, we encourage you to first check with the Huron Building Department as to what may be required.  Too often contractors proceed with work without proper guidance or required permits, exposing the property owner to expense and frustration which could have been avoided.

Introduction

The Town of Huron is beautifully situated.  Bordered by Lake Ontario on the north, the Great Sodus Bay on the west and Port Bay on the east, Huron remains a picturesque, rural setting with rolling hills, orchards, farmlands and vineyards blended with vast wooded areas.  A hunting and fishing paradise, a place where agriculture, resort and industry come together in harmony with its natural beauty.

We are in the process of developing this web page for the Town of Huron.  Please bear with us and watch it grow!
