Koetzle said MacFarland wasn't getting a raise, as some town employees initially thought, but was receiving a salary increase equal to his new title. Councilman Alan Boulant said the town could afford the increase, because it was still less expense than a similar position the previous board had paying a $120,000 salary. MacFarland will make a salary of $79,500 under his new position.
Also passed was a resolution authorizing an inter-municipal agreement, which added $6,543 of revenue to the town.
Glenville will provide dog control officer services for the Town of Charlton, which Koetzle said was a "win-win" agreement. Boulant came up with the idea after the town had struggled with the position in the budget, so to ease the financial burden he developed a "creative solution," said Koetzle.""
