LIVERMORE FALLS — Selectmen voted Tuesday to rescind a Dec. 2 vote to  give nonessential employees Dec. 26 off with pay.

They then voted to close the Town Office on Dec. 26 and allow Town Office staff only to use a vacation or personal day or compensation time. 

Town Manager Kristal Flagg made the recommendations prior to the vote.

Chairwoman Louise Chabot said she had discussed the initial vote with Flagg, and she agreed that it could cause problems.

Under the first vote, police scheduled to work would have had to work with no extra compensation. Highway Department employees would have had to work, if it snowed or stormed, also without additional pay.

Town Office staff are not in a union, Flagg said.

The Town Office will be open a half day on Dec. 24 and be closed Dec. 25 and 26.

Police and highway workers are covered by union contracts.

In another matter, Flagg said the antique firetruck will be housed at Otis Ventures LLC in Jay and Livermore Falls.

There was no price mentioned to store the truck, she said. She plans to call Otis Mill co-owner Tim DeMillo to discuss it.

“I’m not sure how long we are going to have to have it there,” she said.

The roof on the town Fire Station is leaking and there are some issues with the back wall and floor where the truck is housed.
