PEPPERELL — During a meeting of selectmen Sept. 29, news that Pepperell will have about $100,000 more income than planned came from Town Administrator John Moak. New growth accounts for about $25,000, state aid will be about $20,000 more than last year and indirect funds from water and sewer were not included in the original budget numbers.

Selectmen confirmed the appointment of Susan MacCarthy as interim director of the Council on Aging. She was the assistant director of activities under the retired director. The COA is going through applications to find a permanent director, Moak said.

Glen Caswell and Anthony Wales were appointed as reserve officers in the Police Department. They both served as auxiliary officers.

Selectmen approved a change on a facade restriction on an 1847 farm. Solar panels will be allowed on the south-facing roof of the property on Nashua Road. The owners want to bring the farm into the 21st century, but “it looks like a historic house and we want to keep it that way,” said Meredith Morton, who owns the house with her husband Jeffrey.
