A legal notice published by the Village of Plandome Manor in the April 15, edition of the Manhasset Press states in part: “The tentative budget provides for no compensation for the Mayor or Trustees.”
During the time I served in village government, no mayor, trustee, or member of any other board received compensation. I do not believe any of my predecessors in village office were compensated. Until the late 1980s, the village clerk was a village resident who served without compensation.
