Island Community Board

The Fishers Island Community Board (ICB) was formed in 2005, following in the footsteps of years of work by the Fishers Island Civic Association. ICB is composed of representatives from each of the Tax Districts, six elected members (three seasonal and three year-round residents), and a representative from the Island Health Project, Walsh Park, FIDCO and the Utility Company. ICB serves in a coordinating role, keeping the island stakeholders apprised of what is happening in the community and hosts island-wide strategic discussions.

Tom O’Neil, President; Zach Hoch, Administrator; Year-round representatives: Meg Atkin, Nate Malinowski, and Candace Whitman; Seasonal representatives: Tom O’Neil, Dicky Riegel, and Willard Soper; Joe Brock, FI Fire District; Karen Goodwin, FI School District; Ace Ahrens, FI Ferry District; Tim Patterson, Waste Management District;  Marc Rubenstein, Island Health Project; Matt Edwards, Walsh Park; Mark Gaumond, FIDCO; Chris Finan, FI Utility Co.; Elizabeth McCance, Ferguson Museum; Tom Sargent, FI Conservancy; Louisa Evans, Town Rep – Ex Officio.

ICB Community Membership:

In order to provide an effective civic forum, the ICB Directors are asking members of the Fishers Island Community to join our Community Member Registration drive. It is critical to the effectiveness of the ICB Directors that elections happen annually. This will ensure that everyone has an opportunity to vote and we can achieve a fair and balanced voice going forward. We have provided a seamless and free sign-up vehicle for both registering and counting everyone’s vote. If you have not yet registered as a member of the ICB community, please do so here:

ICB Membership Dues:

Please consider paying voluntary annual dues of $10 for individuals or $25 for businesses to assist in covering ICB’s annual costs. We welcome additional contributions of any amount! Because ICB is a 501(c)(4) civic association, dues and contributions are not tax-deductible. You may always send checks to ICB at PO Box 464, Fishers Island, NY 06390. We have also provided a PayPal account below should you prefer to make payment online.
