The council approved an increase in fees to fund the position beginning next year.
The council rectified the town’s budget by appropriating money from lesser used line items into other line items.
“This is not additional money,” said Town Manager Ed Mitro. “We are just moving money within the line items to ensure we are not going into the negative on anything.”
Mitro said he is monitoring the town’s legal fees closely.
“The legal fees line item is much higher than anticipated because we had two attorneys for some period of time,” he said. “I am hoping to not have to ask for an additional appropriation for that.”
The council will hold its agenda-setting meeting at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 25, in the Town Hall Conference Center, 1100 W. Oak St. The council’s next full meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2, in the Town Hall Beverly Harves Room, 1100 W. Oak St.
