Asst. Treasurer/Tax Collector Training Program
Town Manager Mark Haddad asked Selectmen to approve the creation of an Assistant Treasurer/Tax collector Training Program, similar to the one used for preparation of a replacement for the Town Accountant position. The request was precipitated by the announcement by the current Assistant Tax collector Joan Talent that she would be retiring next year. Cost for this training was pegged at $20K.
Eligibility for the training position would be initially restricted to existing employees, and if no suitable candidate is identified then it would be open for others to apply for. Haddad stressed that he likes to hire from within whenever possible.
