FYI concerning village, town and township...
If the nomenclature is the same as Wisconsin, then:
Village--an incorporated community (like a city, but a different form of government)
Township--a physical piece of land (one of many) within the county.
Town--the governing body (not incorporated) for the township.
And then there's the hamlet--a cluster of structures (commercial, industrial, residential) which is NOT incorporated. It may be just a crossroads complex that's been given a name. It has no local government, therefore is governed by the Town government.
A village or city may exist within a township, but is not governed by the town government.
That's the way it works in Wisconsin. Check if it's similar to New York.
Has this confused you more???
