Selectboard appoints two to town positions

During its Monday night meeting, the Williston Selectboard approved two personnel appointments.

Rita Dessau will replace Donta Prince as the town’s representative to the Winooski Valley Park District and serve the remainder of her term to June 30, 2015. Prince has moved out of town.

Marilla Whitcomb, executive assistant to the Williston Police chief, will be the town’s animal control officer until June 30. Her appointment got the board’s okay after a charge (duties) for the position was adopted. Whitcomb was interviewed last month. The animal control officer is an unpaid, volunteer position.
