Zoning board to fill vacancy in April

The Planning and Zoning Commission is holding applications open for Town Planner until the end of this month, but has not scheduled candidate interviews for the position.

“We have received four applications for planner,” said Chairwoman Rebecca Mucchetti at the commission’s Tuesday night meeting.

“It’s disappointing, because at this time last year we had received nine.”

Former Town Planner Joanne Meder gave notice of resignation Feb. 17 and left officially Friday, March 3.

Meder, a South Salem resident, replaced longtime Town Planner Betty Brosius in June 2016.

Commission members will conduct interviews Tuesday, April 18, to fill a Democratic commission vacancy.
