The Planning Board is considering whether to hire an office secretary as a temporary position for the remainder of the fiscal year. The previous secretary left the part-time job a couple of months ago, but when the position was advertised, selectmen chairman William O’Donnell told Town Administrator Rick LaFond not to appoint a new secretary because the town needs to reduce “non-essential” spending to accommodate future needs such as a new school. LaFond, the town’s appointing authority, suggested planners fill the job as a temporary position only until this fiscal year ends June 30. The job, which pays $10,000 annually for a 19 hours a week,  drew 14 applicants when advertised. The Planning Board discussed the idea at its Feb. 19 meeting but hasn’t decided what to do.
