Select Board to introduce new development director
BENNINGTON — Bennington's new community development director will be introduced to the public at Monday's regularly scheduled Select Board meeting.
Following the public comment period, Shannon Barsotti is scheduled to be introduced to the public as former Community Development Director Zirwat Chowdhury's successor. Barsotti started her new position with the town Monday, March 4.
The board will also hold a discussion on a "Small Ask" policy in order to set parameters for small funding requests.
"The board must approve these requests because they are not anticipated during budget development," explained Town Manager Stuart Hurd. "The board has a small contingency built in to the budget but at the present time we have no guidelines to help us determine appropriateness."
The board will also be asked to approve two town health officer re-appointments. Larry McLeod's current term expires at the end of March, and Kevin Goodhue's current term expires at the end of July.
The meeting is expected to last approximately an hour and 15 minutes.
