Search underway for a new town manager

The selectmen met with a representative of Maine Municipal Association (MMA). MMA will conduct the preliminary job interviews background checks etc.. MMA is charging $4,900 for their services plus fees for posting in the newspapers.

The selectmen said they want the same wage and benefit package as they had with Nancy Hatch. Free heath, dental and life insurance, travel expense and +/- 40 K per year.

Given that this is not a 40 hour a week job this seems excessive!

How'd you like the newsletter?

We finally got the newsletter out. It was a group effort getting the facts together, editing and prep for the post office. We sent out 650 newsletters, plus another 100 to distribute at the local stores.
