There are two years remaining on Booan’s term. Hage will serve until March 31, 2011. Who serves the last year will be determined in next March’s election.
Hage is the father of Eric Hage, who completed his first three-year term on the board in March, but did not seek re-election.
``I want to thank the mayor and board of trustees for putting their trust in me. I hope to make a positive contribution to the community,’’ he said.
Booan appointed Hage to chair the Village Gateway Technical Committee. Other committee members include Joe Middleton of Bassett Healthcare and former NYS Assemblyman Tony Casale.
Hage is a former Director, Corporate Business Development, for Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester and a consultant in business development to high tech startup companies. He is currently a member of the management team of Mohican Financial Management in Cooperstown.

- College football innocence long gone There is nothing quite like the pageantry of college football. The bands, cheerleaders, students, alumni, and loyal fans provide an atmosphere you can't quite get anywhere else. For a long time the college game also had an innocence about it (at least compared to pro football) but that has slowly faded away.
