New Mayor Sworn In

On January 1, 2024, Judge Mary Lynn Burke swore in C. Scott Runck as Mayor.  He is the managing director at one of the Village’s oldest businesses, Moore Family Funeral Homes.  Mayor Runck previously served on our Village Council and the Batavia Local School District Board of Education.  Scott and his wife, Mary Moore, have lived in the Village for over 30 years.  

Mayor Runck said he is honored to serve the community and looks forward to continuing and expanding upon the exciting things happening in the Village of Batavia.  “I live my life with the idea that we are put on this earth to be servant leaders. To quote Albert Schweitzer,  “The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion, and that will help others.”  One of my favorite things about our Village is the people.  The people, working together, give our village strength, character and make our Village thrive,” said Mayor Runck.
