The Board of Selectmen last week deliberated for nearly an hour on whether to reappoint Zoning Board of Appeals member Regina McAuliffe to another 5-year term. The board ultimately decided to defer its decision until other candidates for the position could be interviewed.
Selectmen originally planned to continue the discussion on the zoning board appointment at tonight’s meeting, but the agenda item was postponed until June 26. A vote on other appointments, including those to the Green Technology and Recycling Committee, Youth Commission, and Constable, is still expected to take place tonight.
At last week’s meeting, Selectman Bill Boland said he would not support McAuliffe for another term on the ZBA for reasons he declined to discuss in person. Chairman John Rooney and Selectman Dan Kolenda said they wanted to evaluate other candidates before making a decision.
Current ZBA alternate member David Eagle has expressed interested in a permanent seat on the board. Selectmen said anyone else who is interested in the position is welcome to apply by emailing a resume and volunteer application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
