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 Island organizations, non-profits and tax districts. 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/Secretary; Year-round representatives: Meg Atkin, Nate Malinowski, and Candace Whitman; Seasonal representatives: Tom O’Neil, Dicky Riegel, and Willard Soper; Christian Arsenault, FI School District; Geb Cook, FI Ferry District; Tim Patterson, Waste Management District; Marc Rubenstein, Island Health Project; Matt Edwards, Walsh Park; John McGillian, FIDCO; Chris Finan, FI Utility Co.; Elizabeth McCance, Ferguson Museum; Tom Sargent, FI Conservancy; Mere Doyen, Fishers Liaison to Southold; 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:
