Board of Trustees

The Village Board consists of the Mayor and four Trustees. The Village Board is the governing body of the Village of Nassau. The Village Board is elected by Village residents to not only oversee Village property and finance, but to maintain the safety, health, comfort and welfare of its residents.

The Village Board is responsible for such functions as the development of Village policies and standards of operation for departments; completion of the budget process; involvement in purchasing, and insurance and bond issues. The Village Board members further act as commissioners for the Highway Department, Water Department, Police Department and Public Safety, Assessment Department, and the Building Department.

The Board of Trustees meets the second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm at Village Hall, unless otherwise publicized. These meetings are open to the public and residents are encourage to attend. The Village Hall is located at 40 Malden Street, Nassau, NY.

Guy Forte has served as a Village Trustee since 2012. Guy moved to the Village in the summer of 2000 with his wife, Sue. They share a home on Elm Street with Sue’s mom, Judy Ziller. Guy has served the Village and surrounding community for many years in a number of organizations including the Village Beautification Committee, Friends of the Nassau Free Library, the Hudson Valley-Berkshire Interfaith Community Network, the Cooperative Community Food Compact, and the Nassau Community Gardens Project. In 2009, Guy helped to establish the Nassau Sunshine Fund, a charitable organization that provides no-interest loans to Nassau residents who are faced with financial emergencies. In 2012, Guy was named Chair of the Fund. For five years prior to becoming a Trustee, Guy served on the Village Planning Board and was appointed by Mayor Collins to the Police Survey Committee in 2011. As a Trustee, Guy has helped to establish the Village Youth Committee; lead efforts to redesign the Village website and to update the Village Masterplan; helped kickstart the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail, review and update a variety of Village laws, including those related to noise control, property maintenance, and zoning, and operationally and financially re-structure the Village police department; secured a grant to partially fund the construction of a pavilion at the Village Commons; and worked toward establishing greater transparency in Village government operations.

Trustee Forte is employed at a local health research consultancy as the Assistant Director. In his spare time, Guy enjoys riding and caring for his horse, Frankie, a blue-eyed, white and brown paint, and playing the drums and guitar.
