Highway surveyor appointed

Robert Brown has been appointed highway surveyor, after holding the job in varying capacities for 18 months. When Richard Harris retired as highway surveyor in November 2011, Brown – then highway supervisor – was named interim surveyor. In May 2012, he was elected to fill the remaining year in Harris’s term. Annual Town Meeting that month authorized the town to seek special legislation to convert the position to appointive, effective with the end of the term, an act that became law late last year. At last month’s annual town election, selectmen appointed Brown on an interim basis while they initiated a hiring process for the permanent job. Brown was the only applicant for the job, and was appointed by the Board of Selectmen on the recommendation of interim Town Administrator Meredith Marini, according to Stephen Amico, the board chairman.
