Lisbon looks for new code enforcement officer


LISBON — The search is on for a new code enforcement officer for the town after Christopher J. Sherwin took a job with the town of Morristown.

Mr. Sherwin said he plans on helping out in Lisbon until a replacement is found.

Town Supervisor James W. Armstrong said Mr. Sherwin will be working on an hourly basis for Lisbon at a rate of roughly $18 an hour until the town is able to hire a new code officer.

Mr. Sherwin was hired by Morristown in January.

Mr. Armstrong said the town is looking for someone able to work at least 18 hours per week.

“Right now we’ve got applications for people to come and pick up in the town clerk’s office,” he said.

If all goes well, Mr. Armstrong said, the town board hopes to begin interviewing applicants in early April.

“We’ve had several inquiries,” he said.

So far, the transition has been smooth.

Mr. Armstrong said Mr. Sherwin planned ahead of time to stay with Lisbon to help out until his replacement is found.

That winter continues its icy grip also is helping.

“It’s a slow time of year,” Mr. Armstrong said.

However, with warmer weather on the horizon, he said, “it won’t be long” before the construction season is underway. The town needs a code officer in place before then, he said.
