Salary Review Committee Meeting

The 2016 Salary Review Committee will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, June 15 at 6:30 pm at  Town Hall.  The members of this year’s committee are:  Myles England, Denise Knowles and Sheila Reilly.   Select Board member Suzanne Huard will be there to review the Select Board’s charge to the committee and potential sources for comparative data.   The committee has been asked to review the stipends of elected officials with particular attention to the position of Town Clerk.

Committee Volunteers Needed

We are reposting the request below. We have one volunteer and are looking for two more. We feel that the commitment will be for no more than two meetings to take place sometime this summer or early fall (in time for budget prep for the 2016 budget).

Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation

We are looking for volunteers to serve on the newly formed Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation. The committee will look at compensation for elected town officials and make recommendations to the Select Board based on a review of similar communities (provided by the New Hampshire Municipal Association) or other potential sources of information. The committee will provide citizens of Rollinsford with an extra layer of engagement and accountability in setting appropriate salary levels for Select Board, Town Clerk, Treasurer, Fire Chief, and others where appropriate. We expect the committee to meet prior to each election/budget cycle so those running for town office will know what the compensation is for that particular office.

Call for Volunteers

The Select Board is looking for volunteers for one established commission and two new initiatives.   Please respond to Caroline Lamoureux if you are interested and please include a brief paragraph explaining your interest.

We’d love your help and input!

The commission seeks two members to serve as alternates to the commission.    (email Al Dionne for more information)

  • Bring solar arrays to the transfer station (at no capital cost to the town)
