Major said the scheduling and use of town facilities could also fall to the new position.
Stapczynski said that in the past, the assistant town manager has helped him prepare materials and do background work in advance of annual Town Meeting.
Kowalski said it was important to look ahead, and to hire an assistant town manager who can take over as town manager once Stapczynski leaves.
“Hire an assistant town manager so you can put a succession plan in place for when you’re not here,” he told Stapczynski, who noted, “That’s a possibility.”
Bucuzzo, who made about $125,000 a year, is slated to leave in November. Hall said she would create a job description based on past ones for the position as well as input from selectmen and other department heads as well as the town manager.
