Seneca Falls Town Board seeks input from community on town manager position

The Seneca Falls Town Board is seeking input from the community regarding the creation of a full-time town manager position. The board will hold a meeting on February 1 at 6 p.m. to discuss this matter at the Ovid Street municipal building.

In January 2021, a citizens advisory committee was formed headed by Gerald Macaluso, retired school superintendent. The committee hired the Center for Government Research to conduct a study of the town government. The center recommended a change from the current part-time, elected positions that are responsible for day-to-day operations. The study reported a majority of the committee were in favor of creating the position of full-time town manager, says Finger Lakes Times.


Seneca Falls leadership hopes the new town manager can work on strategic planning, capital management, and issues regarding personnel. The board allotted $110,000 from its Host Community Agreement with Seneca Meadows to pay for the position in 2022.


If the board receives support from the public at February 1 meeting, the next step is drafting a local law to create the position. If all goes well, the position could be included in 2023 town budget.
