Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed off on a measure that will consolidate the Ovid and Lodi town courts after the first of the year. Following a study this spring ... each town approved doing away with separate judges and provide for the election of a single justice in November to a 4 year term. It's expected that judge would operate out of the Lodi Town Municipal building.
The Town of Ovid position has been vacant since the death of Town Justice Wayne Ewing in December.
