Village of Brockport Code Enforcement Office Update

To all who have need for the services of the Village of Brockport Codes Department: We are currently in a state of transition as fulltime Code Enforcement Officer and Building Inspector David Miller resigned on May 31 and we accepted the resignation of part-timer David Rearick July 2nd. The Village will be hiring a new fulltime Code Enforcement Officer as soon as we have the go-ahead from Civil Service to hire under the civil service title “Code Enforcement Officer, Building inspector, and Fire Marshall.” In the meantime, we have engaged the capable services of Chad Fabry, Code Enforcement Officer for the Town of Clarkson, who has worked for us before.

The Codes Office is currently closed on Mondays until further notice, allowing Codes Clerk Katie Brown time to catch up on paperwork while we are short staffed. Please contact Chad Fabry directly for codes matters needing immediate attention at 585-465-8591.  For all non-urgent matters, please call Katie Brown at the office, 585-637-5300 x114.

Canal Embankment Work to Begin 6/19

June 18, 2018


The Canal Corporation is announcing that work to improve the condition of elevated canal embankments in Orleans and Monroe Counties will begin Tuesday, June 19. Crews will be working along areas of the embankment where trees and other vegetation were removed in recent months over the next few weeks. Work will involve removal of felled trees and underbrush, temporary erosion control, and general cleanup.

Beginning in the fall of 2018, crews will return to these areas to begin removal of stumps, backfilling and compaction of material, regrading as necessary, and planting of permanent erosion control.

The last phase of work on these elevated embankments will begin in 2019, which will include planting of vegetative screening in certain locations, construction of new trail access points, and additional drainage and other improvements in certain locations.

The schedule for Canalway Trail closures necessary for this work will be subject to change based on progress, site conditions, weather, and other factors. Work will be suspended on weekends and holidays in the interest of keeping all segments of the Canalway Trail open during these periods. A tentative schedule for these closures appears below:


State Street (Rt. 31) and Redman Road June 19-22
Park Ave. Bridge and Sweden Walker Road Bridge June 21-22; June 25-29
Redman Road (Route 31) and Brockport Guard Gate June 27-29
Smith Street Bridge and Main Street June 28-29
Brockport Guard Gate and Smith Street Bridge July 2-3


East of Washington St. and West of Trimmer Rd. June 19

Trail closure information will be updated daily at http://www.canals.ny.gov/trails/projects.html

Other work along the embankments in other areas not specified above will continue through the month of July, but will not require long-term closures of the Canalway Trail. Updates on short-term (less than a day) trail closures in these areas will be provided at http://www.canals.ny.gov/trails/projects.html
