SINCLAIRVILLE - The Charlotte Town Board has decided not to fill the position of highway superintendent.
Lewis Nickerson, the town's elected highway superintendent, resigned at June's Town Board meeting. At that time, Kenneth Bochmann, town supervisor, said the town would advertise the opening and appointed councilmen Henry Hopkins and Kenneth Smith as a committee to interview candidates.
At the same time, Doug Walker, a highway department employee, was appointed interim superintendent.
At least two candidates interviewed for the position, Mark LeBaron and Michael Livermore, both town residents. Livermore is the current street supervisor for the village of Sinclairville.
"All roads have been repaired with the assistance of all the towns quickly and easily," Bochmann said. "Interviews were done but it was the consensus not to fill the position. Doug Walker is doing a good job. In November, the highway superintendent position will be up for election."
