In all actions or proceedings the town shall sue and be sued in its name, except that town officers may sue in their official names for the town's benefit.
In an action against a town, process and papers must be served on the chair of the town board or on the town clerk.
The chair shall see that the action is defended. The chair shall also give the town board a full statement of the facts about the action or proceeding so that the board can decide how to defend it. The statement must be given at the first board meeting after the town is served.
