LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 200th Anniversary of the Town
of Victor, New York

WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to honor and commem-
orate the distinguished histories of the communities which comprise the
noble body of this great Empire State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the 200th Anniversary of the Town of Victor, in Ontario County,
New York; and
WHEREAS, The Town of Victor was established on May 26, 1812, by an act
of the New York State Legislature; Victor had, up until that time, been
a part of the Town of Bloomfield; and
WHEREAS, The new township was formally called Victor after a founding
member of the Boughton family, Claudius Victor Boughton, who was a hero
of the War of 1812; however, Victor did not formally organize its town
government until April 6, 1813; and
WHEREAS, The celebration will last over a span of two calendar years
because Victor officially became a town in 1812, but it did not have its
first town board meeting until April 1813; and
WHEREAS, Remaining fruitful over the ebb and flow of decades of growth
and change, the Town of Victor continues its commitment to enhancing the
quality of life of its citizens, ensuring a positive business, institu-
tional and educational climate, and providing all essential services;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Town of Victor, recognizing the
significance of the role it continues to play in the life of the commu-
nity of the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Town of Victor.
