The Liberty Grove Town Board will consider the resignation of supervisor Gary Farber when it meets on Wednesday evening. Farber submitted his letter of resignation recently due to ongoing health concerns that have forced him to miss several meetings. Town chairperson John Lowry has served on the board with Farber for six to eight years. He says Farber’s presence will be missed.
Lowry says it is likely the board will ask for interested people to apply to be appointed to the seat for the remainder of the term which ends in April. The Liberty Grove Town Board will open its meeting at 6 p.m. before heading into closed session to discuss its recent acquisition of property in Gills Rock and its ongoing lawsuit with the Village of Sister Bay regarding the ownership of the area’s wastewater treatment plant.
