MALTA — Former Town Supervisor Paul J. Sausville was presented with a plaque and recognized by Malta Town Board members, and the Nigro Companies, for his many years of service to the town at a ceremony held Wednesday, July 6. The ceremony was held in the Nigro Companies’ newly renamed Paul J. Sausville Gazebo to honor the 40 years Sausville spent working to improve the town.
Sausville equated the gazebo, located at the rotary intersection of routes 9 and 67, to a symbol of the quality of life here, and he thanked the Nigro Companies for choosing Malta as a location for their business.
“I spent 40 years volunteering my time with the town of Malta and also as an elected official, and in some way, the gazebo represents all of the volunteers beside just me over the last couple of hundred years since the town was founded,” said Sausville.
Sausville retired at the end of last year after 10 years as town supervisor. Before that, he served as a councilman, Planning Board chairman and chairman of other committees.
“Paul, all the positive things that you said about the town, remember, for the past 40 years you had a lot to do with it,” said current Town Supervisor Vincent DeLucia.
DeLucia also thanked the Nigro Companies, and Sausville’s family for “loaning him” to the town of Malta.
Sausville was accompanied to the event by his wife, Nancy, his daughter and granddaughter.
