LIVERMORE — Voters will be asked in June if they want to change the administrative assistant position from appointed to elected beginning June 2014.

Town Clerk Renda Libby said she verified the signatures on the petition submitted by Cathy and Dennis Lee that requested the change.

Selectperson Chairman John Wakefield said the board voted April 22 to put the question on the town meeting warrant.

Residents will also be asked to consider a proposed $1.23 million municipal budget for 2013-14 during the annual town meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, at the Livermore Elementary School.

After factoring in carry-forwards, departmental revenues and the Memorial Forest settlement, the net budget is $1.03 million.

The overall proposed spending plan is $16,263 more than the current budget, but with revenues and carry-forwards factored in, it is $30,354 less.

The amounts do not include school or county taxes.

The Board of Selectpersons and the Budget Committee budget proposals differ by $2,786. The majority of the difference is due to the selectpersons’ plan recommending 2 percent raises for all employees, except the Highway Department, administrative assistant Schaub said. They are recommending a 1 percent increase for that department. Highway Department employees received a 3 percent raise last year while other employees received none, he said.

The Budget Committee is recommending a 1 percent increase for employees, except for the Highway Department, he said. It is recommending no increase for those employees.
