GOUVERNEUR The Town Council appointed Timothy L. Tike Matice on Tuesday to the board position left vacant by the death of William E. Mashaw.
Mr. Matice retired about a year and a half ago as the town highway superintendent.
He was appointed to serve as a councilman until the end of the year. If he wants to continue on the board, he will have to run in November for Mr. Mashaws unexpired term.
The position will be up for re-election again in 2016 for the full four-year term.
