This session of the radio show shares the audio recording of the Ad Hoc committee for the Town Administrators Review. The meeting was held on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 in the 3rd floor training room. I recorded this audio in the room. 

Subcommittee Chair Tom Mercer opens the meeting. Councilors Robert Dellorco and Glenn Jones participate. Town Administrator Jamie Hellen and HR Director Karen Bratt are also in the room.

  • Live reporting from the TA Ad-hoc Review Cmte meeting starting now, Chair Mercer, Councilors Dellorco Jones present along with TA Jamie Hellen and HR Director K Bratt


  • Summary draft provided to subcmte related to the Council goals discussed earlier this year (1/4/23) meeting. Credit to the staff recruited and operating under Jamie and to the work accomplished, Jamie happy to be here with these circumstances #tareview0125
  • Nothing to add to the goals, other than the new committees, #tareview0125
  • Per Jamie, looks great as drafted, we have a great team. Going to full committee for formal approval at the Feb 1 meeting, motion to move to Council, approved by 3-0; motion to adjourn, 3-0

The meeting runs about 8 minutes, so let’s listen to the Ad Hoc committee for the Town Administrators review meeting.
