Mount Pleasant Councilman Carl Fulgenzi was named interim supervisor this week, but town board members were not prepared to announce who will serve the balance of former supervisor Joan Maybury’s unexpired term.

Fulgenzi said that the board is expected to make the appointment to fill the post through next year on Oct. 28.

Fulgenzi, the owner of a Pleasantville plumbing business, said he is making arrangements for another plumber to take over his day-to-day responsibilities so he may dedicate enough time to the supervisor’s duties. If necessary, he would work at his business on weekends.

“I (was) born and raised in Mount Pleasant so it is my deep desire to maintain the quality of life here and to continue to maintain the infrastructure while improving our downtown areas to make them more business friendly and attractive,” said Fulgenzi, who has been on the board for nearly seven years in his current stint and has been deputy supervisor. He also was elected to a four-year term in 1989.

Maybury announced in a letter on Sept. 30 that she was stepping down on Oct. 10 to devote more time to her family because they have been faced with a series of health issues. Also, during the past year Maybury’s twin sister passed away and she has also seen the birth of her first grandchild.

Councilman Mark Rubeo said he was confident that Fulgenzi would do a good job as interim supervisor because of his longtime service to the community.

In addition to his town board service, Fulgenzi has been on the Mount Pleasant IDA since 1989, belongs to the Thornwood Lions Club and is vice president and one of the founding members of the Thornwood-Hawthorne Chamber of Commerce. He also serves on two town committees, the Safety Committee and the Hazard Mitigation Committee.

This week, none of the town board members would reveal who they might choose as Maybury’s replacement through 2015. If the board selected one of its members to serve the remainder of Maybury’s term, it would then appoint another board member to fill the vacant council seat, Fulgenzi said.

Since work is underway on the 2015 town budget, Fulgenzi said the board would probably not appoint a fifth member until sometime in November.

If selected to fill the supervisor’s vacancy through next year, Fulgenzi said he would run for a full term next year.
