Received by the Parks and Recreation Department:

Our family moved to Ontario 18 months ago and we just love the parks Department.

We've been to Hogwarts, Oz, an Easter egg hunt, received flu shots, learned to play soccer,

had Santa visit our house, run and bounced our winter blues out at Friday family night.

Thank you so much,



Budget Workshop News

The Ontario Town Board started our accelerated budget process on March 17th at our regular workshop meeting.  More than 20 residents and students participated in the brain storming session.  It was a great kick-starter to what is hoped a fruitful, citizen driven 2015 town budget. 

On April 21st at 7:00pm at Ontario Town Hall we will have our next installment with a primer on the regulated steps of budget development under New York State Law.  You will learn how your local representatives plan for and spend your tax dollars.  Please plan on attending.  More to come.
