CLARENDON – Members of the Clarendon Town Board met Monday evening for the organizational meeting to make annual designations and appointments.

As in 2015, the Town Board will meet regularly on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall, 16385 Church St., with the exception of August when the meeting will be held at the Historical Society Barn, 16426 Fourth Section Rd.

Allen Robinson was re-appointed Deputy Supervisor and committee appointments include: Highway Committee: Marc Major and Allen Robinson; Building Committee: Marc Major and Paul Nicosia; and Budget Committee: Supervisor Richard Moy and Allen Robinson.

Moy was appointed Town Marriage Officer with a term to expire Dec. 31, 2017.

“Anyone who wants to get married, I can do it,” Moy said following the appointment.

Additionally, council members decided not to hire a part-time laborer to assist the Water Department. Moy explained that there is a problem with people not paying water bills and he proposed that a part-time person could help Highway/Water Superintendent Larry Swanger with reading water meters, re-sets, repairs and turning water the water supply on and off.

“There are people out there not paying,” Moy said. “It’s got to be taken care of in a timely manner. It shouldn’t get to the point of being put on taxes.”

Swanger told the board he would handle the job. “I’ll get on it more often,” Swanger said.
