Rushford Town Court

Rushford Town Court is located on Main Street in the town of Rushford, New York. The town of Rushford is located in Allegany County, New York.

Rushford is a town in Allegany County which lay in the country’s northwestern part which comprises 5 townships and 2 ranges. William Rumsey made the subdivision in the summer of 1807. Rushford’s surface is hilly upland for the most part but divided into valleys and ridges by tributary streams to Caneadea Creek. Caneadea Creek is the town’s main stream which discharges into Genesee River.

The town’s soil is mostly gravelly loam with some of the creek bottoms being rich sandy loam. Rushford’s upland soil is much better compared to average with good crops of grains like potatoes and some other vegetables being raised. Still, the town is considered better adapted to dairying and grazing. Rushford’s original forest presented wide variety of timer with being quite valuable.

The town’s first settler came in 1808 and the town of Rushford was established around 1816 which was part of Caneadea. In 1825, part of the town of Rushford was taken in order to form the new town of New Hudson. The town of Rushford was the pioneer town in Allegany country and in the state for the manufacture of pineapple cheese.

It was April 1, 1851 when Robert Norton started to manufacture pineapple cheese in only a small building located south of the academy. Then not long after, Chas J. Elmer started working with Mr. Norton and became the manager of his pineapple enterprise. For 32 years, the manufacture of pineapple cheese continued in Rushford and in 1856, the first cheese boxes were made in Allegany County.

The town is also known for its liberal support to schools and so was quick in making liberal subscriptions in order to fund their first academy, the Rushford Academy and Union School, which was chartered February 21, 1851. The building costs for the academy was almost $5 000 and continuously operates to make sure that their citizens receive quality education.

When playing a sport, typically the more points you get, the better. However, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issues points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. And like golf, when it comes to points on your license, the less points you have, the better.

New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed limits and sets out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The fine that a court may assess is based on the specific traffic violation stated on the ticket, the ticketed speed, and the number of previous convictions.

It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation by themselves without knowing the procedure and customs of the local court system. However, oftentimes a person who represents themselves risks missing important deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the court rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often, unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
