Village of Lowville to Hold Special Meeting February 13 to Reappoint Trustee Resigning to Meet Requirements to Retire from County Position

Lowville, NY- The Village of Lowville Board of Trustees has scheduled a special meeting for February 13, 2024, at 10 a.m., at the Village office on Bostwick Street.

 

Two appointments are expected to happen during the meeting.

 

The Board is expected to reappoint Trustee Timothy Widrick to his current seat on the board. Mr. Widrick will be resigning his position as a village trustee, effective February 9th, in order to meet the requirements to complete his retirement as a Code Enforcement Officer for Lewis County, scheduled for February 10th.

 

With both the county and the village using the same New York State Retirement System, Mr. Widrick canít retire from his county job while still an employee in the retirement system. After retirement, any retiree in the system is allowed to take another job in the system, as long as the salary does not exceed $30,000 annually, allowing him to be reappointed following his retirement if the Board choses.

 

When a seat on the Board of Trustees becomes vacant, the Board can then appoint an individual to the position until the next election. In this case, the appointment would run through March 31, 2025 and a special election would be held in March of 2025 for the seat. The Board has indicated their intention to reappoint Mr. Widrick to the seat until the special election takes place in March of 2025. Mr. Widrick was elected to his second four-year term on the board in March of 2023, with his current term originally set to expire on March 31, 2027.

 

A similar situation took place in late 2018 when Greg Kulzer, District 7 representative at the time on the Lewis County Board of Legislators, retired from his job as a Dairy Products Specialist with the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets and resigned his position as a legislator before later being reappointed to the position until the following election.

 

Lowville Trustees are also expected to officially appoint Brittany Vinette as the new Village Clerk/Treasurer during the February 13 meeting. Ms. Vinette will take over for Interim Clerk/Treasurer Pam Roes, who has been filling the role since the resignation of Clerk/Treasurer Danielle St. Louis on August 23, 2023.
