Selectmen accepted the resignation of Alene Reich from three town boards: the Planning Board, the Historical Commission, and the Community Preservation Committee.

As the Planning Board is an elected office, Town Administrator Robert Pontbriand advised selectmen of the need to schedule a joint meeting of selectmen and the Planning Board to appoint a successor to fill the vacant seat on the five-member board until the April election.

Resumes and letters of interest should be sent to Planning Board Chairman Mark Fermanian at and Pontbriand at

"Alene's going to be missed on these committees," said Selectman Gary Luca. "She did a lot of good work."

Selectman Chairman Jim Fay noted that Reich "did a lot of good work there" on the Firehouse Reuse Committee, too. The selectmen voted 5-0 to accept Reich's resignation.
