Finger Lakes Times Article Ontario County elections board warns of voter registration scam By DAVID L. SHAW firstname.lastname@example.org Aug 31, 2023 CANANDAIGUA — Ontario County voters are being warned about a scam in which a person shows up at their door impersonating a Board of Elections staff member and asks questions about their voter registration — and may accuse them of committing crimes because their names allegedly appear in the statewide voter database more than once. In a statement released Tuesday by Elections Commissioners Albert Magnan and Mike Northrup, the Ontario County sheriff’s office is aware of the potential for this activity. The commissioners said county voters should be aware that Board of Elections staffers do not engage in door-to-door investigations on voter registration. “Any representation by a person or persons at your door claiming to be Board of Elections staff is false,” the commissioners said. Magnan and Northrup said as the 2023 election campaign season approaches, voters may encounter people affiliated with political organizations, voting, or other issue specific groups seeking to provide them information or advocate on behalf of candidates or causes. They urged voters who encounter persons at their home who say they are members of the county Board of Elections staff to call 585-396-4005 or email email@example.com.

- July 26, 2023Town of PhelpsPublic Outreach:Route 96 over Route 14 Intersection Analysis
Rt. 96 over Rt. 14 Interchange Analysis Public Input Round 1- Existing Conditions and Needs Project Purpose The project will determine the feasibility and any benefit to eliminating the existing grade-separated intersection of NYS Route 96 and NYS Route 14 (Rt. 96 and Rt. 14) in the Town of Phelps. The condition of the deck/ superstructure of the bridge have deteriorated to the point where attention is needed. This analysis will compare the life-cycle cost of fixing the existing infrastructure as it's currently constructed versus the life-cycle cost of an at-grade intersection. This is the first round of public engagement. The goal is to introduce the project to the community and obtain input on the issues of existing conditions and needs, inventory findings, opportunities for both the travel needs and the future land use, and to seek local knowledge. Come see us at the Phelps Sauerkraut Festival on Thursday, August 3rd. Talk with the project team at headquarters at the pavilion from 4 to 7 p.m. For questions about this project please contact Jody Binnix, GTC Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (585) 232-6420. https://publicinput.com/u0125
