The town supervisor fills a significant role, serving in several major capacities, including:

  • Presiding Officer (Chairperson)-  The supervisor is the presiding officer at meetings of the town board (Town Law, Section 63)
  • Town Legislature (Town Board Member)- The supervisor votes on matters before the town board as do all the other board members (Town Law, Sections 60 and 63).
  • Town Executive and Administrator- After town board decisions have been made, it is the supervisor who often carries out the decisions.  The supervisor usually receives the majority of complaints and suggestions of citizens, as well.
  • Town Fiscal Officer- The supervisor is the treasurer of the town and generally represents the town in conducting its financial affairs.  The Director of Finance/Budget Officer performs these duties for the Town of Rush.
