Town manager funding was removed from the proposed 2022 operating budget during the Town Deliberative Session

Town manager funding was removed from the proposed 2022 operating budget during the Town Deliberative Session on Feb. 8. Voters cut a $56,200 line item for the town manger position, which would be created through a separate warrant article (Article 4). That line item represented a pro-rated amount for a June hire, pending approval of Article 4. The Select Board has verbally agreed to provide a town manager with total compensation (salary and benefits) up to $120,000 per calendar year, from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31. Some of the 35 members of the public in attendance felt the town was too small for a town manager, and that town manager funds should be spent on additional workers, not management.
