The Town of Penfield is committed to sharing timely and accurate information with the residents and media outlets. Informed citizens who follow, consider, and act upon fact-based information contribute to meaningful community dialog and effective involvement with their local government.
The Penfield Town Board and Town staff encourage all Penfield constituents to rely on this website, Penfield TV, and the Town’s official social media for direct, fact-based town information. At a time when social platforms make it easy to publish, consume, and share inaccurate, opinion-based content, it is critical for an informed public to responsibly choose its news sources. Also, consider attending a Town meeting, especially if you are interested in a particular topic.
The quality of life in Penfield benefits from open communications and respectful dialog throughout the community.
