Town manager Scott Crabtree recently made a second round of layoffs to address ongoing financial troubles. Crabtree said that on May 18, layoff notices were issued to a full-time Cemetery Department employee; a full-time custodian; a full-time clerk in the Youth and Recreation Department; a part-time clerk in the Human Resources and Personnel Department; a part-time clerk in the Police Department; and a part-time enforcement officer in the recycling program. Two part-time animal control officers also were laid off and will work on an emergency on-call basis, and a full-time parking officer was reduced to part time. The action follows the May 8 layoff of six Department of Public Works employees, five of them full time and one part time. Crabtree, who succeeded Andrew Bisignani as town manager on April 1, said the cuts are needed to reduce a budget deficit for the current fiscal year that is estimated at $750,000 to $1 million, and to address findings from an ongoing audit that the town over two years had violated municipal finance laws through some of its budget practices.
