The person elected as Town Highway Superintendent beginning at the biannual election in 1989 shall be elected for a four-year term of office.
This article shall take effect following approval by the affirmative vote of the majority of the qualified electors of the Town voting upon the proposition for approval of this article at the 1987 general election and upon filing thereafter with the New York State Secretary of State.
