Town Board

Definition of Roles

The Town Board consists of the Supervisor and four Council members. Town Board members must at the time of election and throughout their terms of office be “electors” of the town. Town Board members have a four-year term of office. Election of Board members is staggered so the entire Board will not come up for election within the same year.

The Supervisor is an elected position, serving a four-year term and is part of the legislative branch of government, acting as administrator, and is the head of all municipal agencies. The Supervisor is a full member of the Board with no additional tie-breaking or veto power, and acts as Chief Fiscal Officer, having the care and custody of monies belonging to the town; disburses such monies, keeps an accurate and complete account of all monies; makes reports as required; pays fixed salaries and, after audit by the Town Board, and preparation of abstract by the Bookkeeper, pays other claims; and leases, sells and conveys properties of the town when so directed by the Town Board. The Supervisor calls and runs meetings as well as sets the agenda for those meetings.
