The legislative authority of the town rests in the Town Board, which is the governing board of the Town.  The law requires certain budget and organizational meetings (Town Law, Section 62, 106, 109).  Beyond that, the Board is generally free to establish, by resolution, a time, date, and place for regular meetings (Town Law, Section 62, Public Officers Law, Article 7).

The Town Board, among other functions, generally fills vacancies in town offices, elective or appointive; may select a town attorney and a town engineer; appoints constables or police officers; and provides for the hiring of such other employees as necessary for the conduct of the town’s business (Town Law, Sections 20, 64).  Certain highway employees are hired by the Highway Superintendent, but within appropriations authorized by the Town Board (Highway Law, Section 140(4)).

Among many other things, the Town Board adopts a budget, fixes the salaries of officers and employees, establishes rules of its procedure and designates the official newspaper of the town.  The functions are so numerous that only a sample can be given here. 

Although most of the functions of the Town Board are set forth in the Town Law, there are others set down in other statutes, such as the General Municipal Law, the Highway Law, the Education Law, the Agricultural and Markets Law and the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law.  In addition, Town Boards may adopt Local Laws pursuant to the Home Rule powers granted in Article 9 of the State Constitution and the Municipal Home Rule Law.
