Thank You

We’d like to thank all the residents who came out to vote thereby preventing the possible tax increase for our town. We will continue to work on your behalf to bring additional AED units to the town, hold CPR classes, research the Pulse Point notification system and work with Mohawk Ambulance to achieve the best service possible for you and your families.

We also wish to thank all those who worked with us going door to door with flyers, making phone calls, posting information and creating a video for the website. We appreciate all your efforts, we couldn’t have succeeded without you! 

Thank you, Town Board Members, June Butler and Dave Hass
