Newstead Supervisor David Cummings will be sworn in to a new four-year term at 11 a.m. Sunday in Town Hall, 5 Clarence Center Road.
In November, voters approved extending the supervisor's term from two years to four to correspond with the terms of the other four Town Board members. Cummings was unopposed in his bid for re-election.
Also being sworn in are incumbent Councilman Justin Rooney for a second full term and political newcomer Donald York, who replaces Councilwoman Cheryl Esposito, who did not seek re-election.
Elsewhere, the Village of Akron is now offering electronic payment of utility bills. Clerk/Treasurer Daniel Borchert said bills for electric, water, sewer and refuse services can be paid by debit or credit card or by automatic withdrawal from the user's bank account.
