Stretch Pants On Fire!

NYS Town Law allows for the appointment of a Deputy Supervisor by the Supervisor to serve at his or her pleasure. This means that any such appointment is a “receive and file” item and serves to notify the Town Board of the Supervisor’s decision. The Town Board has no role in this appointment.
