It was standing-room only at the Jay Township Supervisors meeting Thursday evening, as a crowd of about 40 township residents gathered to express their views and hear the supervisors' plans regarding township business, such as their recent decision to eliminate the township's roadmaster position.
The supervisors began by entering into an executive session to discuss personnel matters. Following the seven-minute session, supervisor Francis Gustafson announced that the purpose of the session had been to inquire whether supervisor Murray Lilley would be interested in accepting a maintenance/laborer position with the township. He then publicly asked Lilley if he would be willing to accept the position. Lilley responded that he would.
Gustafson noted that the position will be full-time.
According to the job description for the position, it requires the maintenance of equipment; snowplowing, including evening and weekend rotation; various tasks as a laborer and equipment operator; and certain duties as a water company operator. The position also allows for overtime for plowing and water company work.
The supervisors explained that a wage had not yet been set for the position and would be put in place by the auditors.
