The Town Board controls Town finances, legislation and policy, and acquisition of real property. It appoints all non-elected officers and employees of the Town, including members of the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals. Along with the Supervisor, the Town Board creates and appoints unpaid members to various advisory boards. The Town Board also votes on the budget recommended by the Supervisor and votes budget modifications or transfers.
The Town Board consists of an elected Supervisor serving a two year term and six elected Town Board Members each serving four year terms which are staggered and serve the Town at large.
Twice a month the Town Board holds a public meeting to discuss and make decisions on pending Town business such as scheduling public hearings to consider legislation, accepting dedicated roads that meet Town standards, awarding bids for equipment and materials, authorizing service agreements, approving expenditures, and much more. The annual schedule for these meetings is published in January of each year.

The public may view and listen to the Town Board meeting on the Town’s website. The public may present comments to the Town Board by emailing email@example.com.
