Brown, who has worked for the rec department in the past, has been more recently working in town’s maintenance department. Stansell said he had the OK of the town council to make the hire, but the council has not voted on the matter publicly.
The town’s charter calls for the “express approval” of the council. Stansell told The News he believed he had that approval. Brown will replace Nolan Crisp, who announced his retirement last week.
