Claremont taps Vt. man to fill recreation post
Brislin is set to take the new position at the end of December, Santagate said Friday.
Several qualified candidates applied for the position, he said. Brislin was chosen for the diversity of his background in recreation, which includes town and city positions.
“There isn’t much he hasn’t seen,” Santagate said.
Brislin’s starting salary is $65,000, Santagate said.
The City Council decided on Wednesday to defer a decision on the fate of the John McClane Clark Outdoor Pool at Veterans Park until next year.
Santagate said since there is no rush on the decision, councilors said it would be best to wait till after the New Year when a new member voted in this November will be seated on the council.
Opposition to that plan from some residents spurred a study of the pool.
In October, the Boston-based firm Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype, Inc. said in its report that an investment of about $460,000 by the city would be needed to reopen the pool and bathhouse. The study concluded that would not be a cost-effective use of city funds.
