Town of Greene

 


 


Town government is run by an elective legislative body, the Town Board.  They are responsible for making the present-day decisions.  Only in special instances is a vote of the inhabitants of the Town required.  When a town board member votes on a proposal before a town board, he or she is representing, through that vote, the views of all of the residents of the town.  The Town Board consists of a Supervisor and four Council-persons.

The Town Board meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Town Hall, 51 Genesee Street, Greene, New York, at 7:00 PM. The Public is always “Welcome”!
