The Town Board on Monday plans to appoint Rose Ann Brunstad to a new clerk-typist’s position added to the Town Clerk’s Office on Nov. 19 when board members approved the town’s 2013 budget.

Brunstad has served since Aug. 27 as the deputy receiver of taxes in the Clerk’s Office, said Town Clerk Johanna M. Coleman, who appointed Brunstad to her current job.

Brunstad replaced Kathy Wehner, who retired as deputy receiver of taxes a couple of months earlier, Coleman told The News.

Brunstad had previously worked as clerk-typist in the town’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry. She had requested, and was granted, a leave from that civil-service position,and was interested in returning to a civil-service position in the Clerk’s Office.

The clerk-typist’s job was posted internally and Brunstad was the only qualified town employee who expressed interest in the new position, Coleman said.

Republican Supervisor Dino J. Fudoli had proposed hiring a part-time clerk-typist but the four Democrats on the Town Board overruled him and voted to make the position full-time.

Brunstad will earn the same amount as a clerk-typist as she did as deputy receiver of taxes: $41,117 per year, plus benefits.

Coleman now must appoint a new deputy receiver of taxes. She said she plans to do so by the end of the year, and she has a candidate in mind, but she declined to name the person until she makes the appointment official.

The board meeting will be held in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave., and is preceded by a work session at 7.
