After ouster, Medeiros may sue town

(Continued)

The only formal payment commissioners have received in the past is a small stipend to cover expenses they incur during the times they are assigned inspection detail.

No compensation goes to any of the officials who are appointed to town boards, committees or commissions in Salisbury, Harrington said. Only elected officials, such as selectmen and the town moderator, receive small stipends for their work, he said.

Medeiros formerly worked at the office of the Essex County Sheriff. Medeiros resigned his position with the Sheriff’s office a few years ago, according to Sheriff Frank Cousins, and filed a workers’ compensation claim that the state is still administrating.
