At its final meeting of the year on December 5 the Seneca Falls Town Board dedicated time to honor three outgoing elected officials and a retiring police officer for their years of service.
Supervisor Mike Ferrara and board member Steve Churchill, who were not reelected in November, received recognition for their contributions. Town Clerk Nicaletta Greer, who chose not to seek reelection after 39 years of service from 1984 to 2023, was also celebrated for her long-standing dedication to the community.
Additionally, the board acknowledged the retirement of Police Department Sgt.-Inv. Mike Petrocci, who served for 25 years. Ferrara and Police Chief Tim Snyder praised Petrocci’s significant contributions, with Snyder describing him as a great asset to the department and community.
Following this, the board approved Snyder’s recommendation to promote Sgt. Martin Rotz to Petrocci’s former position and officer Andrew Hilkert to Rotz’s previous role as sergeant.
In a related decision, the board, following an executive session, voted unanimously to hire Greer as a temporary, part-time clerk to train her successor, Melissa Brand-Brown, at an hourly rate of $40 for up to 80 hours in January.
