The town clerk/treasurer question has taken a new turn with the submission of a wage claim for $15,077 by Mary Mead to the Vermont Department of Labor (DoL). The claim, filed on May 25, alleges that her salary was calculated differently from all other town employees and has been unresolved for two years.
As noted in this week’s selectboard article, the issue revolves around hourly pay rates and a miscalculation of salary based on the increase of her hours from 35 to 40 per week.
The claim must be met or countered within 10 days of the receipt of the letter. Considering the town only recieved the DoL letter on May 31, they have requested a delay until June 10.
A possible June 6 Selectboard meeting is being contemplated.
