Responsibilities:

The Town Board manages the day-to-day operations of the Town Government and is accountable for the health, safety and welfare of all citizens.

Like the federal and state governments, town government has three branches, the executive, legislative, and judicial.  The Supervisor is the Chief Executive Officer while the Town Board is the legislative body.   There are also two independently elected Town Justices.  The Town Government also performs important administrative functions, and the Town has independently elected positions, including the Town Clerk/Tax Collector and the Highway Superintendent.

The Zoning Board of Appeals has responsibility for interpreting zoning laws and and considering variance requests. The Planning Board considers site plans, subdivision proposals, and special use permits, to name a few.
