Jay Savino Fired by Clarkstown

STATEMENT FROM TOWN OF CLARKSTOWN

On April 2, 2013, the Clarkstown Town Board held a special Town Board meeting to discuss the continued retention of the Law Office of Joseph J. Savino to represent the Town in tax certiorari matters, in light of the recent charges filed against Mr. Savino.

After a brief executive session, the Town Board unanimously voted to terminate the contract, effective immediately. The Town Board expressed that the firm would not be able to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Town under the present circumstances.

For the time being, the Town Attorney’s Office will cover pending court appearances while replacement counsel is sought.
