Meet Rex!

Meet Rex! Rex is a ten-month-old Pit Bull mix who was brought to the shelter because the landlord wouldn't let him stay. If you're looking for a happy, sweet, and social young dog then Rex is your match! Rex has a beautiful black and white coat, and weighs in at 55 pounds. He's a very lovable dog, and starts to wiggle when you give him attention. He has lots of energy since he is only 10 months old. Rex does get a bit nervous sometimes when being handled so he may take time to warm up to new situations. Training classes would help Rex to build confidence as well as perfect his doggy manners. Lollypop Farm recommends that Rex go to a home with children 6+ and he must meet any dogs already living in the household as he has a bit of a physical play style. If you’re looking for a wonderful dog, come meet Rex at Lollypop Farm in Fairport. This happy boy would make a great addition to any family.

Irondequoit Town Board delays vote on I-Square PILOT

The Irondequoit Town Board once again tabled a vote that could have given approval to the I-Square Project.

Board approval would have given developer Mike Nolan the green light to apply for a PILOT agreement with the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency.

The PILOT agreement would lower the taxes for the proposed town square development.

The town wants to be in on the negotiations with COMIDA or get something in writing from Nolan that outlines the projects benchmarks.

Nolan believes he's already given the town everything it needs and has asked for.

“The town keeps saying yeah we'll support the application, but we still want to be involved in it further and we want to see the final, the agreement is between us and COMIDA. All they're looking for is a letter of support and this has been a year last November, so we're in 15 months over a letter,” said Nolan.
