TOWN OF NIAGARA – Supervisor Steven Richards named a new deputy supervisor at the annual reorganizational meeting Wednesday.

Councilman Danny Sklarski was picked by Richards to serve in the post for 2013. He replaces Councilman Marc Carpenter, who has served in the post a number of times, most recently for the last two years.

Richards said he prefers to make the change periodically to give the other board members the experience.

“I like to try to rotate it through the whole board, especially since I will only be here another few years,” Richards said. His current term expires in four years. The deputy position adds $3,500 a year to the councilman’s salary of $12,038.
