Tusten voters to decide bookkeeper issue

When the board came out of executive session, they voted three to two to move forward with the law with Falk voting against Harrison.

Harrison said the law will create a situation where the highway superintendent, the code enforcement office and the town judges will all have the ability to hire their own administrative employees, but the supervisor will not.

There will be a public hearing on the matter at the next town meeting on May 9, at 6:45 p.m. at the Tusten Town Hall. The referendum, which will cost the town $600, will be held within the next couple of months, and Harrison will continue to fulfill the responsibilities of bookkeeper until then.
