ASSISTANT TRAINING PROGRAM.
Selectmen unanimously approved Town Manger Mark Haddad's recommendation to provide an Assistant Treasurer/Tax Collector training program which will allow a new hire to work under the Treasurer/Tax Collector and learn the responsibilities of the position.
Current Treasurer Joan Tallent is expected to retire soon and Haddad wanted to prepare for the situation. According to Haddad, a similar program was created during the Town Accountant transition and worked very successfully. The cost of the training program could be in the range of $15,000 to $20,000.
