The chief executive officer of most Villages in New York State is the mayor.  The mayor is elected to a two year term.  Some of the duties of mayor include: Preside at the meetings of the board of trustees.  Appoint all non-elected officers and employees.  Appoint one trustee as deputy mayor, who serves in the mayor's absence or inability to serve.  Appoint individuals to fill vacancies in both elected and appointed offices when the vacancy occurs before the expiration of a term.  To enforce and prosecute all violations of the laws, rules and regulations.  Execute all contracts in the Village's name.  May also sign orders to pay claims and sign checks when authorized by the board of trustees.

As your Mayor I would like to welcome you to our new website. I hope you will find this website user friendly and informational to keep you aware of the day to day operations of your Village government. I would also like to welcome all the new comers to the Village, whether it is just to visit or to become one of our community members. Cohocton has a lot to offer everyone, feel free to get involved with your local government or any one of our many organizations that work hard to keep our community enjoyable.
