Occasionally, the Town Board acts in an adjudicatory, or “quasi-judicial”, manner. In that capacity, the Town Board operates, not as a legislature, but more like a court. In a quasi-judicial proceeding, the Town Board is not setting new policy, but applying the standards in an existing ordinance, statute or regulation to facts presented at a hearing, similar as to how a judge would act. In other words, much like a court would at a trial, the Town Board is applying the law to the facts gathered at a public hearing to arrive at its decision. Quasi-judicial proceedings usually only involve individual properties and are not effective Town-wide.
For example, when the Town Board hears a land use application on a specific property or development, it is generally operating in its quasi-judicial, or adjudicatory, capacity.
