Town Attorney Nicholas Ciappetta has been named deputy town supervisor, succeeding Patricia DelCol who retired on Tuesday.
Ciappetta will not receive an extra stipend for the assignment. Director of Operations Gregory Atherton will handle day-to-day operations.
Ciappetta and Atherton served as co-chairmen for Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci’s successful campaign for the 10th Assembly District in 2012.
Ciappetta, who also serves as president of the South Huntington school board, was sworn in Wednesday.
