Meet the Town Board

The Town Board is the governing, legislative, and policy-making body of the Town.

The Board is comprised of four Council members, who are elected to a four-year term, and the Supervisor who is elected to a two-year term. The Supervisor presides over Town Board meetings.

The Town Board controls town finances, the town budget, and salaries. With the exception of elected officials, the Town Board hires Town employees as well as appoints members of boards serving the Town such as the Planning Board, Board of Zoning Appeals, and the Conservation Advisory Council.

The Danby Town Board meets regularly twice a month on the first and third Mondays. These are public meetings to discuss and make decisions on pending Town business such as scheduling public hearings to consider legislation, awarding bids for equipment and materials, approving all expenditures, developing Town policies, and much more.  Meetings are held in person at Town Hall as well as over Zoom. Links to the meetings can be found in the town calendar. 

Danby residents who would like a subject to be added to the agenda should email the Town Supervisor  at least five days before the meeting. However, almost all meetings include an item for Privilege of the Floor near the beginning of the agenda. Anyone may speak on any topic during this period; advance notice is not required, but there may be a time limit.
