WILTON — The Board of Selectmen unanimously agreed Tuesday to enter into a one-year contract with the town of Turner for coverage by its code enforcement officer.

Turner’s Code Enforcement Officer, Roger Williams of Livermore, has some hours to spare, Town Manager Rhonda Irish told the board. Turner selectmen have agreed to contract with Wilton for Williams to provide code enforcement and building-code inspections for approximately one day a week, she said.

Williams has worked for the town of Turner for 15 years. He will remain an employee of Turner, which covers his benefits. Wilton will pay Turner a sum of $25 per hour for his services, Irish said.

Thursday will be the day Williams is in Wilton. He will be there for Planning Board meetings which are held every other week on Thursday nights, she said.

Selectman Terry Brann asked what the length of the contract was and suggested making it an annual contract. Selectman Tom Saviello amended his motion to approve the contract to include one year.

The town has advertised for a part-time code enforcement officer after Paul Montague chose to resign from that portion of his job in June. Montague now works 24 hours a week as a part-time counter person at the Town Office.

Years ago, the two part-time positions were combined, providing a full-time (37-hour) position with benefits, Irish said in June.

The two positions turned back to part time with no benefits when Montague resigned from code enforcement and decided to stay with the office position, she said. [email protected]
