At the end of the open session, the board went behind closed doors with Town Counsel Michael McCarron, Sproul and John Cena of the Board of Assessors to discuss a salary proposal for a new chief assessor. The salary range was advertised at $75,000 to $86,681. Selectmen Chairman Bert Knowles said his board was not yet ready to announce the name of a new assessor, but that the board would deliberate the appointment publicly at a later date.
The board is planning regular meetings on Wednesdays, Jan. 23 and Feb. 6 and 27, at 7 p.m. in the first-floor hearing room of the 1910 Town Office Building.
Selectmen’s meetings are now rebroadcast daily at 3 and 7 p.m. on Comcast Channel 9 and Verizon Channel 42.
