LIVERMORE — Selectpersons on Monday will formally consider a recommendation to hire a Livermore man as a driver/laborer for the town.

Ron Greenwood, who had previously worked for the town, was one of 19 applicants who applied for the position.

Board Administrative Assistant Kurt Schaub and Highway Foreman Donald St. Laurent conducted interviews and were ready to make their recommendation to the Board of Selectpersons on July 13. However, Schaub learned during that day that there wouldn’t be a quorum at that night’s meeting.

Schaub said he called each selectperson and each agreed to extend the offer of employment to Greenwood.

It was an urgent situation because former highway foreman Moe Laverdiere’s last day of work was on July 17 and the position needed to be filled, Schaub said. The recommendation for Greenwood’s pay is $12.21 an hour, which was his parting wage when he left the town’s employment, Schaub said.

Greenwood has given notice to his current employer, the Maine Department of Transportation, and will begin working for the town Monday, he said.

The select board will take its official vote on the hire at 7 p.m., July 27, at the Town Office.
