Mayor Jason West said that he’s typically an “off-the-cuff” speaker in public, but at last Wednesday’s Village Board meeting he read a prepared statement in which he quoted two New York State comptroller’s reports, as well as several New York State legal precedents that claimed that it was “illegal” to reduce a Town supervisor’s salary while he or she was in office. This was in response to a late-night decision by four members of his previous board -- two of whom did not seek reelection and two of whom are still on the board -- to make a motion not only to deny his proposed $13,000 salary increase, but also to reduce his position and pay to that of a part-time employee, from $35,000 to $21,000.
