Town Board

Duties:

In New York State, towns have been organized with an elective legislative body, to wit: the Town Board. This Board usually consists of the Supervisor and four Councilpeople who, as a group, represent the executive head of the town. Such is the case in the Town of Hurley. There is no single executive in town government comparable to a mayor of a city or village. The Town Board serves as the executive, administrative and legislative body of the town. Clearly then, the actions of the Town Board have a profound effect on the residents and businesses within the town. An individual board member may not unilaterally act on behalf of the Town Board. The Board acts as a unit and must function as a body.

Town Council members, under state statute, serve a term of four years. The term of office of the Town Supervisor is two years. Election of members of the Town Board is normally staggered, so that the entire Board will not come up for election in the same year.
