Welcome to the Office of the Town Supervisor:
The Town of East Bloomfield is home to approximately 3,600 residents, which does not include residents residing in the Village of Bloomfield. East Bloomfield was settled in 1789 just thirteen years after our country was founded. This historic and beautiful community offers a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities for people of all ages.
The Town Supervisor is an elected position. The position was originally a two-year term, which has been changed to a four-year term. The change was made possible by a public referendum passed in 2015. I completed a two-year term in 2016/2017 and am currently serving my first year of a four-year term.
Other elected positions include: four Town Board Members, Town Clerk, Highway Superintendent, Tax Collector and two Town Justices. All elected positions are four-year terms.
The Town Board meets twice a month on the second and fourth Mondays. Each board member is assigned committee work. The Town's current committees are Audit/Finance, Buildings/Grounds, Highway, IT/Computer, Insurance, Parks/Recreation, Water/Sewer and Personnel.
There are several other town positions that are appointed positions which include: Code Enforcement Officer, Assessor, Bookkeeper, seven-member Planning Board, five-member Zoning Board and five-member Board of Assessment Review.
