November 3, 2020 Election Referendum Appointed Clerk Position

On the ballot for the November 3rd, 2020 election there will be a question as to whether the clerk for the Town of Brooklyn town board shall be appointed by the Town Board. On February 11, 2020 we passed an ordinance (see below) to switch the position from elected to appointed and according to state statute it must now go before the voters in the form of a referendum.

ORDINANCE NO. 2020-1
