ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, without costs or disbursements.
Contrary to the appellant's contention, the Family Court had the authority to initially place him, without his consent, with the Dutchess County Commissioner of Social Services for a period beyond his 18th birthday (see Family Ct Act §§ 714[a], 756[a][i], [b], Matter of Matthew L., 54 AD3d 956; Matter of Brittny MM., 51 AD3d 1303, lv denied 11 NY3d 713; cf. Matter of Robert J., 2 NY3d 339, 345-347; Matter of Jude F., 291 AD2d 165, 168-171).
FISHER, J.P., MILLER, ANGIOLILLO and BALKIN, JJ., concur.
