ANDOVER — A public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 8, in the town hall to discuss the petition-initiated recall of 1st Selectman Susan Merrow and proposed changes to the employee ordinance.
This is the second straight attempted recall of board Chairman Susan Merrow.
Merrow, who was elected to a three-year term on the board in March 2008, survived the first recall attempt by 26 votes in November 2008. The tally was 289-263.
On May 19, selectmen received another recall petition signed by many of the same people who sought the first recall attempt.
Reasons stated on the petition for Merrow’s ousting are: neglect to perform duties of office, conflict of interest, and behavior unbecoming a public official.
Explanations behind the reasons are expected to be brought by petitioners to the public hearing.
Voting for a special town meeting on the recall and ordinance changes will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, in the town hall.
