Greetings from Mayor Gee
Welcome to the historic Village of Scottsville’s website!
As Mayor of the Village of Scottsville, I'd like to welcome you and present to you the Village’s website. We stand committed to improving our citizens' and visitors' access to our community, and we hope you enjoy scrolling through our site to see all the valuable information that is available to you about our Village.
Whether you are a long-time resident, new to our community, or a virtual visitor, we believe you will share our sense of pride in our Village founded in 1789. We are the first settlement west of the Genesee River in New York State; we are located sixteen miles from the City of Rochester. Scottsville is well known for our world-class brown trout fishing on the Oatka Creek located on the Village’s southern border, and we welcome everyone to participate.
During your stay, be sure to visit our array of businesses. Have a bite to eat at one of our tempting eateries; or visit the beautiful Scottsville Free Library, proudly listed on the National Historic Registry. If nature is your thing, take a stroll down to Canawaugus Park, enjoy the scenery along Oatka Creek or hike/bike down the NYS Greenway Trail adjacent to the Canawaugus Park.
We are pleased to offer you this user-friendly website to showcase some of the opportunities available to you whether you are thinking about opening a business in Scottsville, relocating to Scottsville, or if you are already a citizen of Scottsville.
I hope our website provides you with beneficial information and assists you in understanding why we feel Scottsville is such a great community. We are dedicated to providing efficient quality service by working in partnership with individuals, neighborhoods, and businesses, to enhance the quality of life and to create a healthy, vibrant community in which to live, work and visit.
I, along with the Village Board and other employees, welcome you to the Village of Scottsville, New York.

Trees in the Village of Scottsville are a benefit to all. Before you take down a tree, or if a utility company contacts you to take down a tree or prune a tree on your property, talk to a member of the Village of Scottsville Forestry Board for alternative ideas. Call
889-6050 (Village Office) and they will put you in touch with a member of the Forestry Board.
The Forestry Board will be rolling out a series of information on the benefits of trees in our community; here is this week’s posting.
A message from Mayor Paul Gee:
All New Yorker’s will be hearing more about shared services this year; this is nothing new to Scottsville. We have been doing it for years in varying ways. Some examples are: consolidation of sewage treatment with Monroe County, shared municipal building and the current consolidation of the EMS (which is mentioned in this article.) In addition, we are part of three consortiums for municipal and workers compensation insurance, and utilities. We will continue to explore options regarding share services, which in turn results in saving tax dollars for the Village. Click here for the article
