5) Voted 3-0 to enter executive session at 6:30 pm to discuss the CEO position.   Returned at 6:40 pm and the motion was made and seconded not to appoint Edward Michaels to the CEO position because  he has prior commitments and will not be able to do the job.  The vote was 3-0 not to re-appoint.  Former CEO Duane Ford was appointed to the position and Michaels was appointed deputy CEO.  Town Clerk Cindy Reilly swore both men in to their positions.

6) Road Commissioner Carter discussed tarring town roads.   Tar from the Main Street intersection up Christy Hill Road to South Cross Road will be approximately $68,000.
