An effort to open the process of making appointments to the town\u2019s boards and commissions continues to be a source of debate among the selectmen, with one saying the latest proposal is too complicated. Using comments and suggestions from the Board of Selectmen\u2019s last meeting, First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice drafted procedures for appointing, reappointing and filling board and commission vacancies, which she presented to the board on July 5. Second Selectman Michael Kaelin said Vanderslice did a \u201cterrific job\u201d on the document, but he had a problem with its \u201cmany moving pieces.\u201d \u201cIt really requires more study,\u201d said Kaelin, who suggested getting \u201cmore input from other people\u201d before the selectmen vote on the procedures. \u201cEssentially, what we\u2019re doing is coming up with procedures we never had before that have a significant impact on things,\u201d he said. Kaelin suggested appointing a study committee to review the procedures and make recommendations to the Board of Selectmen about what it does going forward.The other selectmen agreed. The board voted to appoint a four-person committee comprised of Kaelin, who will serve as chair; selectman David Clune, and representatives from the Democratic and Republican town committees. The Democrat and Republican town committees will each select their respective representatives and report back to Kaelin. The Board of Selectmen agreed to use Vanderslice\u2019s drafted procedures to make appointments for positions already posted on the town\u2019s website, but not post anymore vacancies until the study committee has reviewed the procedures and made recommendations.The study committee will report back to the Board of Selectmen in October.
