of town highways and bridges, and the removal of obstructions caused by brush and snow.The Superintendent generally has the power to hire, subject to appropriations established by
the town board, and direct highway department employees for those purposes. The salary
and expenses of the superintendent and the deputy (if any) and certain other administrative
expenses are paid from the general fund. Other highway expenses are generally paid from
the highway fund (Highway Law, Section 141; Town Law, Section 32).
