After more than 15 years of service, Charles DiPasquale has announced his retirement as Mount Morris Town Supervisor, effective today. His successor is the former Mount Morris Deputy Town Supervisor, David DiSalvo.
As the Town Supervisor, DiPasquale served on the Livingston County Board of Supervisors and was a long-standing member of the County’s Public Services Committee. DiPasquale is known for his commitment to public service and an unwavering dedication to the people of Livingston County, said Board of Supervisors Chairman David LeFeber.
“On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I would like to thank Chuck for his many years of outstanding service to our County,” said LeFeber. “He has always made sure the interests of the Mount Morris community and the County as a whole are well represented. And as an integral and knowledgeable member of the Public Services Committee, Chuck was instrumental in executing large county capital projects like our new jail and Emergency Operations Center. We all wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement.”
Throughout his life, DiPasquale’s professions and interests have all been centered on public service. After achieving the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, he answered the call to service joining the United States Medical Corps in 1963. He returned home to Mount Morris in 1967 to serve as a police officer, where he was promoted to Chief of Police after four years on the job. During that time, he also became the first criminal justice instructor at the Charles G. May Center and volunteered with the Mount Morris Fire Department. DiPasquale retired from the police force in 2001 after 35 years of service to the community. He is also a former president and board News from Livingston County, N.Y. member of Mount Morris Central School, co-founder of the Mount Morris Town Ambulance Corps, and past president and member of the Knights of Columbus.
“Mr. DiPasquale epitomizes what a good citizen can be,” said Livingston County Administrator Ian M. Coyle. “He is highly respected throughout the County for his achievements and selfless service to those in our community. I join the Board of Supervisors in thanking him for his dedication to helping others and wish him a happy retirement.” Newly-appointed Mount Morris Town Supervisor David DiSalvo added, “Chuck deep down really cares for his community and his citizens. It was an honor to work by him all these years. He will truly be missed.”
