Welcome to Pawling

Nestled in the foothills of the Berkshires, Pawling is a community of abundance. Country vistas, unique homes and a quaint Village welcome all. Town residents enjoy the oldest municipality owned golf course in America, a dozen tennis courts, two lakes, over 300 acres of parkland. The Great Swamp, Appalachian Trail and Nature Conservancy offer outdoor enthusiasts opportunities aplenty. In a community steeped in benevolence, dozens of volunteer organizations provide everything from tours of Washington's headquarters to a staffed Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center.

Longtime Town Justice David Daniels has notified Supervisor James Schmitt and the Town Board of his intent to step down, at the end of the month, after his years of service.

The Town Board is requesting resumes from interested Pawling residents to interview to be appointed until a special election is held in 2023. You must be at least 18 years old and a Pawling resident to apply. Experience in the Judicial system is appreciated but not required. The Pawling Town Justice Court consists of two part-time elected Town Justices and one full time clerk.
