Acting Town Manager Bill Hart today announced a re-organization of Town Government. In a letter to the Town Council, he stated, “I have determined that the function of the position of Assistant Town Manager is redundant and unnecessary to efficient functioning of town government responsibilities.”
The plan will eliminate the position of Assistant Town Manager, and reduce the pay for the position of Director of Finance and Administration from $120,231.07 base pay to $109,523.71. That office will continue to supervise the Town Clerk/Tax Collector’s Office, Welfare Operations and the Human Resource Manager’s responsibilities. Information Technologies will be shifted to the Office of the Town Manager. The guidelines regarding the Director’s fiduciary responsibilities to the taxpayers of the Town also were clarified and strengthened.
“The recent situation involving impact fees meant provided the impetus to examine how Town officials could serve the residents of Londonderry more effectively.” said Hart. “This is a start towards that goal; indeed we will continue to assess our operations taking action where needed.”
