SINCLAIRVILLE - At its recent meeting, the Charlotte Town Board decided not to fill the position of highway superintendent.
The elected highway superintendent, Lewis (Lewie) Nickerson resigned at last month's town board meeting. At that time, Town Supervisor Kenneth Bochmann indicated that the town would advertise the opening and appointed councilmen Henry Hopkins and Kenneth Smith as a committee to interview candidates.
At the same time, Doug Walker, a current employee of the town highway department, was appointed interim superintendent.
At least two candidates interviewed for the position, Mark LeBaron and Michael Livermore, both town residents. Livermore is the current street supervisor for the village of Sinclairville.
Bochmann explained, "All roads have been repaired with the assistance of all the towns quickly and easily. Interviews were done but it was the consensus not to fill the position. Doug Walker is doing a good job. In November, the highway superintendent position will be up for election."
