For Town Clerk Jill Lau and Town Treasurer Carol Russell, their time as elected officials in Nasewaupee will soon be over. Nasewaupee voters approved a pair of referendum questions to make the clerk and treasurer appointed rather than elected. Voters approved the decision for the clerk position by a 601-509 margin and a slimmer 595-512 margin for the treasurer spot. With a lot of change on the horizon, Nasewaupee Town Clerk Jill Lau says the move will give someone office hours that can handle it.
Lau and Russellwill remain in their current roles as elected officials until April. After that, the town will have to hire someone to take on those duties.
