The Planning and Economic Development Administrator position in Lyndon has been vacant for seven weeks without any applicants, despite a starting salary of $50,000 to $55,000, plus benefits. The town’s former administrator, Nicole Gratton, moved to a regional planner position but continues to lead two major projects, while her other duties were redistributed among existing personnel. The added workload is stretching town employees thin, especially as they prepare for a town-village merger on July 1. In an attempt to attract candidates, officials are considering modifying the job description, requirements, and salary, though the planning commission believes the current salary is below expectations for applicants meeting the job’s criteria.
