continued •Town Clerk William Rawson was appointed as registrar of vital statistics.
•Sherry Williams, the town's new bookkeeper, was made petty cash officer.
•Danae Tucker was re-appointed zoning enforcement officer.
•Tony Jordan was again made town attorney.
•Mark Shactner was designated attorney for the Planning Board.
•Bill Mosher was almost reappointed animal control officer. Correspondence was sent to the board from the current animal control officer in Thurman, who'd responded to an advertisement seeking applicants for Johnsburg animal control. That's a good reason, said Olesheski, to see if Mosher is still interested in the job or the new man should be asked to take on the duties. The appointment was tabled.
•Don Moore was appointed by Highway Superintendent Dan Hitchcock as his deputy, and confirmed by the board.
•The News Enterprise was named official town newspaper for Johnsburg, making it the go-to publication for placing legal advertisements for town offices.
In addition, town mileage reimbursement was set a 50 cents per mile, a compromise between the former town reimbursement of 45 cents and the county's rate of 55 cents.
Vanselow is wasting no time in shaking things up in his office. Town meetings won't hold to the Wevertown to North Creek rotation that's directed recent schedules.
He said the Wevertown town hall will be the new base of operations for town board meetings, with two visits to the hall this month. February’s second meeting will be the first of four at Tannery Pond, with a Ski Bowl meeting in July. In March, they'll convene at the North River firehouse, with a meeting at the Garnet Lake firehouse in September. They'll also stop in at Scout Hall in April and October.
The meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 7 p.m.
