Town of Danby Organizational Chart

A Note about the Org Chart:
Towns in New York State are generally granted broad home rule power to run towns in such a way as to benefit the people in their communities. Town government is the truest form of self-governance!
Danby’s Town Board is the legislative body that sets policy, and adopts budgets for the town.  The Town Supervisor is a member of the Town Board, charged with additional fiscal responsibilities and running the board meetings (among other things). T
he Town Supervisor is not the “supervisor” of the board, nor do they “supervise” the Town Clerk, Highway Superintendent, or the Town Court.
The organizational structure is
 nothing like the traditional hierarchical structure of typical corporate America. 

How does this look on an organizational chart? As you can see, there are a lot of lines representing direct working relationships.  Most committees and councils provide reports for the board, but do not necessarily “report” to the board. While there are no lines between the clerks office and the board, I work with them on an almost daily basis.
This unique organizational structure led to some excellent conversations with the board on how the town operates! While the lines show the direct working relationships, we all work together for the residents of Danby!
