The Village of Deposit has officially done away with the the town court and the police department. Resolutions were passed late last year and were put up for a public vote on Tuesday with both easily passing.

Board members say they will work with the Broome and Delaware County Sheriff’s Offices to either match or exceed current law enforcement resources.
