Responsibilities:

New York Town Supervisors are elected officials who act as leaders of the town's legislative branch.  Working with board members, working with citizens, performing financial duties and administering the decisions of the board are the primary duties of a town supervisor. 

 

According to the Department of State Handbook for the State of New York, the town supervisor position has been in effect since the late 17th century.  Originally a position entirely concerned with town finances and maintaining the town financial records, as time passed the position gained more duties as well as more provisions to keep the town supervisor's power directly connected to the concerns of the town board.  The town board is composed of four citizens who are elected by the town's residents.
