New Town Justice Sworn in
The Town of Fenton is pleased to announce that Honorable Ambrose P. Madden has succeeded retired Honorable John E. McEnaney as town justice effective January 1, 2009. Ambrose, his wife MaryBeth and daughter Kelly reside in Hillcrest and are active in many community organizations. Judge Madden received his certification in December, 2008 after successfully completing the New York State “Taking the Bench” course offered by the Office of Court Administration.
The Town Court is off to a very busy first quarter of the year 2009. We have adjudicated over 137 cases in January, 131 cases in February and 159 cases in March collecting nearly $38,000.00 in fines and surcharges. We recently held a Jury Trial in which six (6) town residents as well as one (1) alternate served as jurors. While we understand that jury service interrupts your personal and business lives, your privilege to serve the Town of Fenton was greatly appreciated. I hope that your time spent with us was both interesting and rewarding to you as a citizen.
We are continuing to update the courtroom and justice office through the Justice Court Assistance Program (JCAP) grant process offered by the NYS Unified Court System. A new computer, telephone, court seal, bar code scanner as well as two new flags has been awarded by this grant. We will continually be applying for these grant monies offered yearly to update and assist our staff with increased security.
On behalf of the Fenton Justice Court, please have a safe and prosperous summer!
