GAINES – Richard DeCarlo on Monday resigned from the Town Board, citing personal reasons.

DeCarlo previously was on the board as town supervisor. He returned as a Gaines elected official on Jan. 1, 2016, after being elected to a four-year term as councilman in November 2015.

Town Supervisor Joe Grube said he expects the Town Board will fill the vacancy soon. He wants to check with the Board of Elections about the procedure for making an appointment.

DeCarlo leaves nearly two years on the term. The person appointed would be named for the remainder of this year. The final year will be up for election this November.

As town supervisor, DeCarlo led the town through several water district expansions. A retired industrial arts teacher from Churchville-Chili, DeCarlo also started and developed Heritage Estates, which has 163 units off Brown Road in the Village of Albion.
