Attending the meeting; Phil Pouech, Andrea Morgante, Tom Ayer, Aaron Kimball, Merrily Lovell, Renae Marshall and attached list.

Meeting called to order at 7:34 p.m.

No changes or adjustments made to the agenda

Phil lead off the discussion on the TA transition. Phil and SB discussed short term goals to fill in the interim position along with any necessary support staff to ensure town business gets done. Next steps include the process to launch a search for a new TA. This includes updating the job description as necessary, advertising the position, interviews and hiring. It was suggested to use a multi‐discipline committee like the last TA search. Phil noted a long‐term goal may be movement to a TM vs. TA position. The board agreed this should be strongly considered but should not hold up the hiring process.

Phil stated a logical option on the table is to utilize Renae as interim TA. She is experienced, and successfully fulfilled this position in the past.

Mike Anthony reflected that Renae would be an excellent choice and his experience with working with the TA and Renae is extremely positive. He suggested the TM position would be good for this town which has a great deal of management required.

Jen McCuin reiterated what Mike had to say. She added that the town employees and department managers are critical servants to the town and their citizens

It was decided to go into executive session in order to discuss personnel, specifically around the interim hire.
