Longtime Village of Blasdell attorney James M. Shaw has told the Village Board that he is retiring after 16 years of providing legal counsel to the village.

The board appointed Shaw’s firm, Shaw and Shaw PC of Hamburg, as acting village attorneys until the reorganization meeting on April 7. Shaw’s son, Joseph Shaw Jr. , who is a member of that legal firm, will not serve in that capacity because he is currently the village prosecutor.
