Salem board votes to hire assistant town manager

SALEM -- The town of Salem is officially hiring.

During Monday night’s meeting of the Board of Selectmen, members voted, 4-1, in favor of seeking an assistant town manager.

Selectman Stephen Campbell was opposed to the move as he felt the salary range of $80,000 to $93,000 was too high.

The assistant town manager will fill the position left open following the sudden resignation of longtime Community Development Director William Scott.

After a dozen years working in Salem, Scott submitted his resignation in late April, stating he’d accepted a similar position that was much closer to his Newburyport, Mass., home.
Scott, who earned a salary of $92,705 last year, will leave Salem in late June.

Town Manager Keith Hickey said the assistant town manager will oversee the community development department, among other things.
