Marley Resigns from Robbins Town Board
Robbins Town Commissioner Clifton F. Marley is resigning from the board effective noon Thursday.
Marley cited time constraints as the reason for the resignation in an e-mail to the town.
In his time as a commissioner, Marley was known as a stickler for proper procedure and for linking with former Commissioner Mark Garner in spurring a thorough reworking of town ordinances and procedures that the rest of the board supported.
Garner stepped down from the board when his term expired last year after deciding to withdraw his bid for re-election. The commissioners appointed Claire Matthew to fill the vacant seat at their December meeting.
Marley’s seat on the board will remain vacant at least a month. According to town rules of procedure, the Town Board must announce its intent to vote to fill a vacancy in open meeting at least 30 days beforehand. That announcement could be made during Thursday's session. An item regarding the vacant seat has been added to the agenda as the first order of new business.
