Genoans picked Sheryl Gonzales to be the town's new manager on Tuesday night. While Gonzales was the front-runner for the job, there was some debate. Town chairwoman Kitty DeSocio abstained from the vote and board member Bill Donohoe waited to see which way the majority would go before casting his aye vote. Board member Brian Williams spoke for the majority when he pointed out that it was late in the game to hire someone who was unfamiliar with Candy Dance, the town's annual fund-raiser that accounts for the vast majority of its budget. Board members also approved offering Gonzales a salary range of between $42,000 and $50,000.

Chains or snow tires are being required on roads around the lake and chains are mandatory over the summit. Interstate 80 is closed until 6:15 a.m. because of flooding.
