Article 24:Worker’s Compensation for Town Clerk

At Town Meeting the Board of Selectmen will ask voters to approve Article 24 which would authorize the Selectmen to include the position of Town Clerk in the group of employees that is covered under the Town of Carlisle Workers’ Compensation Program.

According to Carlisle Treasurer Larry Barton, the Town Clerk, the only elected official who works full time for the town, is not currently covered under the town’s Workers’ Compensation Program. Passage of Article 24 would allow the Town Clerk to receive the same benefits as other full-time employees. Barton expects that any increase in expense to the town would be nominal since more than 200 employees are currently covered by the policy. ∆
