- Town Of Southold

Welcome to the website operated by the Civil Service Employee Association, Unit 8785 (Town of Southold). We are a membership organization representing the interests of Town’s employees. We we first organized in 1969 and have grown to about 160 members strong, representing most town workers. Southold Town extends from the western border of Riverhead Town (hamlet of Laurel) to Orient Point and includes Fishers Island which is located off New London, CT.

Our members are the people providing those vital services that make Southold the wonderful place to live, raise a family, work, run a business, play, relax and unwind from that western city life. Our members are the ones out there 24/7 answering that 911 phone call when needed, maintaining safe roads for travel, running emergency shelters, helping the clients at the Senior Services Centers, assisting residents at the Solid Waste Facility, helping navigate various services at the Town Hall Departments, maintaining the many public facilities like the recreation buildings, beaches, boat ramps, parks and trails throughout the Town.

Just a little more about our history. This Membership Organization was first formed back in 1969 and at the time we represented about 50 employees including the officers of the Town’s Police Department. Today we represent about 160 Town employees except for; Police Officers of the Town Police Department (represented by the Southold Town Police Benevolent Association), managerial/confidential employees, most seasonal employees, elected and appointed officials.
