Kingfield votes to change to town manager style of government

Jan. 18—KINGFIELD — Residents voted 70-60 Tuesday to change to a town manager style of government, Administrative Assistant Leanna Targett said Wednesday.

State law requires a town manager plan to be adopted by voters at least 90 days before the annual meeting. The adoption means the town has a Select Board, town meeting and town manager for governing.

The Select Board will appoint a town manager and set the salary June 3 at the annual meeting, Targett said.

She has worked for the town for 16 years and been administrative assistant for nearly 11 years, she said.
