MASSENA, N.Y. (WWNY) - A new Massena mayor has been appointed. Timothy Ahlfeld was voted in 3-0 by the village board on Tuesday.
The mayor’s post was left empty when Timmy Currier resigned in January after his arrest the previous month on a drug possession charge.
A special election for mayor will be held in November to fill out the remaining year of Currier’s term.
In November 2022, a regular election will be held to elect a mayor for a four-year term.
Ahlfeld previously served on the village board of trustees from 2010 to 2018.
