The Town Supervisor serves in three major capacities: Chairman of the Town Board, Town Executive, and Fiscal Officer.
Chairman of the Town Board
The Supervisor is not only the presiding officer of the Town Board, but votes like all other members. Contrary to usual practice for presiding officers who merely break ties, the supervisor goes on record on each matter that comes up.
After Town Board decisions have been made, it is the supervisor who carries them out. He is the administrator of all programs and he has charge of all town offices and buildings. It is usually with him that citizens register their complaints and their suggestions. He disburses funds and has broad responsibility for the entire administration of the budget.
The Supervisor acts as the treasurer and demands, receives, and has custody of and is responsible for all money belonging to or due the town. Deposits all moneys within ten days after receipt in the official town bank account.
