LIVERMORE FALLS — Stephen J. Gould of Fayette is now the full-time town manager.
Gould has served as interim town manager since Aug. 14, 2017, after Kristal Flagg left to take a job as business manager at Regional School Unit 73 in Livermore Falls.
Following an executive session Aug. 7, selectmen unanimously voted to approve Gould as full-time manager, Gould said Monday. He was given a three-year contract, with the first year’s salary of $60,000, which will be renegotiated annually, he said.
Gould worked 20 years in security at the Wausau Paper Corp. Otis Mill in Jay until the mill closed in 2009. He has been a registered nurse since 2011 and a police officer for about 30 years. He also volunteered with a local ambulance service for many years.
Gould said he and selectmen began work on a contract for him to become full-time town manager earlier this year. Before it was finalized, Gould said he took a medical leave and was back on the job in June.
