Brewster Village Employees

These are the individuals that make it all work. Village Council, the Mayor, and the Administrator may appear to be at the head of the list, but when the work is completed, 99% of the credit must be accorded the employees that on each day, many times after daily work hours and in the most inclement weather, get the job done. Each of us must realize that electric, water, sewer, fire, ambulance, and police services, and good streets and parks don't just happen.  When you flick that switch, or turn that tap, or call 911 these are the guys that have responded.
