The Board of Selectmen intends to appoint Assistant Town Clerk Nancy Martucci as Acting Town Clerk upon the departure of Town Clerk Dolly Bean, who is retiring at the end of this month.
There are two agenda items relating to the town clerk’s position for the upcoming August 22 meeting. The first would update the classification of Martucci’s job from assitant town clerk to deputy town clerk, retroactive to July 1, 2011. The second would make Martucci acting town clerk upon Bean’s retirement, with a monthly stipend of $1,500 until a permanent town clerk is hired and trained. That change would be effective Sept. 1, 2011.
Bean’s retirement was announced in late July. She has served as town clerk for 10 years, and has worked for the town for 24. Bean said Thursday she is working with Martucci and others in the office to ensure a smooth transition.
Historic district study committee planned
Also at the meeting Monday, the Board of Selectmen intend to establish a historic district study committee for the Boston Post Road from Rockledge Drive to Mungertown Road. The following members have been recommended for appointment to that committee: John Lind, Garry Leonard, Eric Berg, Thomas Boyle, and Susan Cartledge. The following alternate members have been recommended for that committee: Eileen Banisch, Peter Horton, and Eric Axberg. The term would be for two years and would expire in August 2013.
The board also will consider appointments and reappointments to the Madison Center Project Committee. The appointments include Eileen Johnson and Gunnar Johnson. The reappointments include Pam McKinnon, Andrew Brauer, Lorey Walz, Eileen Banisch, Gail Fearon and Ryan Duques.
Beautifying and strengthening Madison Center
The committee’s charge will be “To oversee implementation of the Madison Center Project Plan as adopted by the Board of Selectmen in order to beautify and strengthen the Madison Center area from Island Avenue to Scotland Avenue, and to incorporate the area from the Scranton Memorial Parking Lot to Bradley Road” and “to seek participation and ideas from Town of Madison Departments, Boards and Commissions, property owners, tenants and citizens, as well as other affected or interested parties, in the implementation of the Plan” and “To seek and apply for contributions/grants from federal, state, and local public and/or private sources to assist in the implementation of the Plan.”
Craig Bernard to be appointed to Planning & Zoning Commission
Also at the meeting, the board will recognize the resignation of Diane Stadterman from the Planning & Zoning Commission. Stadterman was recently appointed to the Board of Selectmen, replacing Noreen Kokoruda, who was elected state representative. Craig Bernard has been tapped to take her place, and would be filling the vacancy for a term to expire January 1, 2014.
The Board of Selectmen meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. at town campus.
