McNamara said his contract requires the town to pay him the merit increase, not the bonus; he also said the issue could be resolved when he meets with the board on Dec. 23 for his job review. The merit increase could be an outcome of discussions about his raises, which have been an ongoing debate since June, he said. “I think it’s resolved,” said McNamara.
