Murphy new mayor in Saugerties

From William J. Kemble in The Daily Freeman:

The Village Board Monday appointed Trustee William Murphy mayor for the next year as a full-time replacement for the retired Robert Yerick. The appointment was made in a unanimous vote, with the first order of business for Murphy, a seven-year trustee, to leave the Village Board table to acknowledge the cheers of his daughters Jillian, 6, and Jaclyn, 9, with kisses. Yerick, who served as mayor for 12 years, stepped down on March 2 due to health problems. The second order of business for Murphy was to let residents know that agendas for future meetings will be posted on the village Web site. “I want a more public-friendly environment, more input from the public, and that’s why I want to make myself available evenings,” Murphy said. Murphy said office hours are expected to be set for Mondays and Wednesdays, with Thursday evenings and Saturdays set aside to meet with residents by appointments.
