Edwards to resign as Code Enforcement Officer

BROADALBIN-Town Code Enforcement Officer David Edwards will resign from the position at the end of the month, according to Supervisor Tom Christopher.

According to Christopher, Edwards has turned in a letter of resignation to the town, citing an increasing workload that would cut into his time as a code enforcer in the town.

“He isn’t resigning as of yet,” Christopher said.

Edwards said Monday he will step down from the code enforcer position due to him filling the Johnstown Town Justice seat left vacant by Donald Nadler, who left that position in November. Edwards’ tenure as the code enforcement officer ends at the end of this month.

According to Edwards, he has served as the code enforcement officer since November 2010. Edwards said he could not keep up with both the work needed for the town as well as the duties of being the town judge.

“I love the town of Broadalbin,” Edwards said.

“We are advertising for applicants right now,” Christopher said. “We are going to look at the most qualified candidates and go from there.”

Edwards, a former town justice, will fill in for the remaining year of Nadler’s term.

Edwards previously held the town justice seat, but stepped down to make an unsuccessful bid for Fulton County Sheriff against Tom Lorey in 2007.
