We are saddened by the passing of former Town Supervisor Fred Lawrence. Fred faithfully served as Town Supervisor from 1/10/2020 to 10/20/2020. Our deepest sympathies go to his wife and family.

With Sympathy:

The Town Board appointed Charles Walters as the Town Supervisor during its October 22, 2020 meeting. We welcome Supervisor Walters to the Town Government!
