SHERBURNE – An election to fill an unexpired term for a Village of Sherburne trustee will be held March 15. Petitions are due to be filed between Feb. 1 and 8 in the Village of Sherburne office. Voting takes place in the town building, 1 Canal St.
Village Mayor William Acee appointed Jack Staley to fill Trustee Stephen M. Dunshee’s position in June when Dunshee left office to become Chenango County Assistant District Attorney. Staley said he would be filling out a petition to run for the remaining term.
“It’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed it,” he said. There were no indications of other potential candidates for the position, according to the village office.
Staley, who lives on Chenango Avenue, said he would like to see through a project to overhaul his very bumpy roadway, and put in sidewalks. Chenango Avenue is the only street in the village without sidewalks.
Currently, paving Chenango Avenue is on hold because village and highway department officials determined that the cost to do so would be too high when considering the poor condition of the road’s base layer.
