Boards and Committees

The Town of Newburgh has several boards and committees that meet regularly to discuss issues within the Town.  The following boards and committees are the standard boards and committees that the Town uses.  From time to time, special committees will be formed to deal with a particular issue but once resolved will disband.  If you would like to volunteer your time to one of the Town's boards or committees please send an email to Andrea Balboni with the board/committee you would like to serve on, your contact information and why you are qualified for this board or commission.

The Newburgh Town Attorney, Chris Wischer, attends and advises all board and committee meetings. 

When required or requested, the Town Engineer, David Hynes, will attend and advise on technical issues to the board or committees.
