Sumner joins Town Board

Dryden's Town Board organization meeting this afternoon started with the swearing-in of returning incumbent Steve Stelick and newcomer Mary Ann Sumner. After repeating the oath of office, they had to sign cards (for the county) and sign a book as well.)

After the ceremony, the board proceeded with its usual start-of-year business, ratifying salaries set in the budget, making minor modifications to the budget, and appointing people to committees. The last part was a little complicated, as the board will be appointing a member to fill Mike Hattery's seat at their next meeting, so it wasn't clear how best to position "new guy".

The regular Town Board meeting will be next Thursday at 7:00pm at the Dryden Town Hall (map).

Update: You can see a much more detailed report on the meeting from Mary Ann's perspective.
