PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

In other Joint Boards of Selectmen news, Ayer Annual Town Meeting occurred on May 14 and 15. A motion to adjourn Town Meeting thwarted consideration of Ayer Selectman Frank Maxant’s citizen petitions to seek the return of municipal jurisdiction of Devens lands to Ayer and the other towns.

“What happened to your petition?” Tom Kinch asked Maxant.

“He got out-gamed,” suggested Phil Crosby.

Maxant explained that he’s gathering signatures now to convene a Special Town Meeting to deliberate and possibly vote on his two petitions.

In other news, the JBOS voted to increase the hours for their administrative assistant Liz Garner from eight hours per week up to a maximum of 90 hours a month. Kinch called Garner’s assistance “invaluable.”
