    The Association of Towns of the State of New York was established in 1933 to help towns obtain greater economy and efficiency. The Association serves town governments by providing training programs, research and information services, technical assistance, legal services, insurance programs and a variety of publications to member towns. It represents town governments by providing advocacy in Albany, monitoring legislation and regulatory action, lobbying and presenting initiatives solely on behalf of towns. The Association gains all of its revenue from dues and activities and receives no State or federal assistance.

    The membership of the Association consists solely of towns, and therefore all town officials are included. From inception, membership support has been strong and has grown to over 97% of all towns. The Association staffing has evolved over the years to meet member needs and now includes attorneys and professionals with experience in town government, the State Legislature and State agencies. The Association's library and computer systems house vast amounts of information on State and local governments, including fiscal and census data, and membership information for more than 20,000 town officials!

    I'm missing something here.....

    Training Manuals

    Written by our technical and legal staff (who have years of experience in town government) and designed to keep town officials updated and informed about the responsibilities of their offices. These comprehensive "how-to" manuals have been a technical informational resource for new and veteran town officials alike.

    The Town Law Manual (2016)
    The Office of Town Highway Superintendent (2017)
    The Office of Town Clerk (2013)
    Tax Collection in Towns (2008)
    Forms and Outline of Criminal Procedure for Town Justices and Police (2006)
    Suggestions for Procedures at the First Meeting of the New Town Board (2009)
    Small Claims Guide for Towns & Village Courts (2009)

    Where is the training manual for lowering the cost of services?

    Or

    Training manual on how to dissolve the monopoly that controls the town you live in?

    Or

    "How to work for the property owner's best interest?"
