About the Village
The Village of Millerton will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2025. It has a very active Board of Trustees led by a Mayor who oversees the day-to-day work of the Village employees. The Village is engaged in several large projects that will make a dramatic difference in the lives of Village residents for decades to come. They will also make Millerton even more of a regional hub than it already is. It will start construction on a new wastewater treatment facility sometime in 2023. Work is also being planned in replacing existing water pipes which have been in place since the early 1900’s. These are multi-million-dollar projects supported by federal, state, and county grants. The 17-acre recreation area known as Eddie Collins Memorial Park has just completed the first phase of a long-term revitalization project. Over $2.4 million was raised for this enormously successful project. A Committee of volunteers is planning to raise sufficient funds to build a swimming pool and pool house. Several Climate Smart projects are underway in the Village to bring greener and more economical energy resources to our residents. The Mayor is actively involved with the Millerton Business Alliance to help cultivate a more robust business sector.
The Village has several staff: the Mayor who is present on a part-time basis; a part-time assistant who supports the part-time Building Inspector; a full-time Clerk/Treasuer. In addition, there are several employees who work for the Department of Public Works. The Mayor and Board of Trustees are in the process of documenting the procedures and office workflow to create a sustainable infrastructure.
The working environment in the Village is professional, friendly, collaborative, and active. We welcome applicants who want to join us.
Candidate must be a resident of Dutchess County, New York.
