The Board of Aldermen held a Special Meeting on Wednesday, June 24th, at the Town’s North End Fire Station. Here are the items to note:
Special Use Permits 19-01, 19-02, 19-03, 19-04 and 19-05: Approved with conditions.
Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Budget: Final draft was presented and approved.
2019-2020 Budget Amendment: Approved. As the fiscal year comes to an end, this a common “closeout” practice that moves surpluses to deficits in order to balance the budget. Staff was pleased to report to the Board that the Budget Amendment did not require the Town to take from the “Contingency” line item, which helps the Town’s general fund balance.
Shoreline Protection Officer: The Board discussed the position and gave direction to the Town Attorney to review the job description.
Town Manager: The Board voted to offer Mr. David Gilbride, who currently serves as the Interim, the position of Town Manager.
