Absent:  Christopher Staiger with prior notice

Call to Order  In the absence of Board President Christopher Staiger, Glenn Blanchard was appointed President pro tempore.  The January 7, 2008 Town Meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m.

Approval of Minutes

The Minutes of the December 17 Town Meeting were before the Council for approval. In order to clarify a motion, the Mayor requested that these be resubmitted for approval at the January 23 meeting. Unanimous consent.

Commissioner Comments

The Commissioners highlighted their attendance at recent events to include the Vigilant Hose Company annual dinner.  Thanks were given to the fire company and to the Emmitsburg Dispatch for the article on Frank Carter.

Administrative Business

Recent break-ins were mentioned and Mayor Hoover added that he had met with the Sheriff’s department a month ago regarding minor thefts.

Reports:

Treasurer’s Report – Commissioner Joyce Rosensteel. See attached report, Exhibit A.

Committee reports – Commissioner Blanchard reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission continue progress on the comp plan and that Mr. Haller is scheduled to make a presentation at the next meeting. Commissioner Clifford Sweeney reported that no one attended the Streets Committee meeting, members are seriously needed.

Agenda Items

MSM – Power Partnership

Brooke Donovan, assistant director of campus activities, described to the Board and audience the upcoming free (canned-good donation requested) 6 events offered in “bringing the community together through culture and fun”. This is a joint effort to recognize

Community needs: building partnership, personal conversation, group investment.

The Mayor commended Mt. St. Mary’s in their concern to provide opportunities for community events bringing the Mount and Town together. He stated that the Mount is a tremendous resource for the community and hopes to make this an annual event plus there will be coordination of additional projects.

Pay Scale Review

Mayor Hoover proposed a change in the pay scale to add a grade 12 for town manager. Upon survey and review of area towns with similar population and number of personnel, he proposed a base step beginning salary of 63,700 with a maximum step 12 salary of $80,764.

He explained that when the pay scale was introduced in 1999, the town manager position was seen as an executive position and left out of the scale being subject to Board action for salary change. He stated that this provides the position itself as subject to the same criteria as the balance of the staff and that it’s an important position to the town to protect. Commissioner discussion supported this action as fair and equitable.

Motion: To approve adding a grade 12 to the salary structure as presented by the Mayor.

  • FY 2007 audit presentation
