Mayor Berman said that advertising as well as recording & notifying applicants could be taken care of by the Village’s Administrative Assistant. A committee formed from the Board would be capable of handling the selection process. Mayor Berman said he did not feel the need to spend extra money to hire an outside firm.

The Board agreed to keep the hiring process in house and to form a committee as suggested by Mayor Berman.
