Lifeline Discount Telephone Service Program (Lifeline)

The Lifeline Discount Telephone Service Program (Lifeline) is designed to make telephone service more affordable for income-eligible consumers. Consumers qualify for Lifeline by participating in certain federal or state assistance programs OR by having income at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines.

Information about the Lifeline program can be obtained from the Lifeline page on our AskPSC.com website. By working together, we can ensure that our most vulnerable residents are connected to vital emergency services, community resources and loved ones.

Sincerely,

Town of Romulus Introduces Updated Web Site

An “new and improved” web site is being released for the Town of Romulus. It will replace the current web site that hasn’t seen any significant changes in over 10 years. It is being developed by FingerLakes1 personnel in conjunction with Town representatives and represents a major improvement in capabilities for both the user community and Town personnel tasked with maintaining the content.

Among the new features are a streamlined interface, more logical organization allowing users to find pertinent information more easily, photo galleries with pictures of the Romulus area, and expanded people and historical sections.

The new website will go live on Tuesday, July 30 and the community is invited to tour the site and submit any comments or suggestions they may have.
