RecCom may get full-time director

At the FinCom February 26 meeting Recreation Commission Chair Allen Deary presented a proposal intended to stay within the FinCom guideline of 2.9% budget increase for FY08 and, at the same time, implement a recommendation of the Personnel Board to hire a "full-time" recreation director.

Salaries for part-time RecCom employees are covered by a Chapter 44 §53E1/2 revolving account that is funded by participation fees. In general, no revolving fund can be used to pay wages or salaries for full-time employees. What Deary proposed is to have up to 10% of future fees directed to the Town General Fund thereby paying the full-time employee but not with the revolving fund. Finance Director Larry Barton endorsed the plan.

Appropriate adjustments would be made in the number of hours worked by part-time employees.
