Town Board

The Wawayanda Town Board, established in accord with Article 3 of the Town Law of the State of New York, is a five-member elective body, headed by the Supervisor who serves as the Chief Executive Officer and four (4) elected Council Members, who together are the legislative, policy, budget-making and appointive authority of Town Government. The Supervisor serves a two-year term and Council members serve four-year, staggered terms of office.

The legislative authority of the town rests in the town board, which is the governing board of the town. The Town Board, among other functions, generally fills vacancies in town offices, elective or appointive; may select a town attorney and a town engineer; appoints constables or police officers; and provides for the hiring of other employees as necessary for the conduct of the town’s business.

The Town Board adopts a budget, fixes the salaries of officers and employees, establishes rules of board procedure and designates the official newspaper of the town.  Most of the functions of the Town Board are set forth in the Town Law. However, some functions are set forth in other statutes such as the General Municipal Law, the Highway Law, the Education Law, the Agriculture and Markets Law, and the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law. In addition, Town Boards may adopt local laws pursuant to the home rule powers granted by Article 9 of the State Constitution and the Municipal Home Rule Law. 

All meeting are held at the Wawayanda Town Hall located at  80 Ridgebury Hill Road, Slate Hill, NY. Town Board Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.  All meetings are subject to change, so check the Calendar for schedule changes. The Rules of Conduct and Decorum  were adopted at the March 20, 2007 meeting.
