Town Governance

About the Town Governance

The governance of the Town of Varick involves three key entities working in tandem. The Town Board, led by Supervisor Bob Hayssen, oversees general operations and finances. Simultaneously, the Planning Board manages property subdivisions and larger developments, while the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) enforces zoning laws, granting variances in accordance with New York State regulations. This collaborative framework ensures effective governance and comprehensive oversight in Varick.
