Carmel Town Board Won’t Replace DiCarlo

We are part of The Trust Project

The Carmel Town Board will be one member short in 2011, as the board has decided not to appoint a fourth councilman to take over the seat vacated by Putnam County Legislator Anthony DiCarlo, Supervisor Ken Schmitt said.

The board had the option of appointing a fourth councilman, who would serve for the year until DiCarlo’s term would have been up, or leaving the seat vacant. Carmel will save $18,849.50 from the position’s salary; the main motive for keeping the seat open, though, was to avoid breaking up the board’s chemistry, board members said.

In the first meeting of the year Wednesday, with Councilwoman Suzi McDonough on vacation, every resolution passed unanimously.
