Lysander appoints on-staff engineer

— Resident John Van Wie also questioned the manner in which officials filled the position.

“You have not been forthcoming,” said Van Wie adding there was no set write up of responsibilities regarding the position. “You were not sharing information.”

Councilor Art Levy, who was the sole vote against the motion to hire an in-house engineer, pointed out that the planning board does not have to use Yaeger for their engineering needs. If they choose not to, this would increase town engineer costs.

In his new position, Yaeger will have numerous responsibilities including looking into public water for Lamson Road, handling the sewer districts for Whispering Oaks and several drainage districts. The town will continue to work with B&L for the Whispering Oaks and Timber Banks projects, as well as Plumley Engineering, although, according to Salisbury, the town will not pay for the services.
