Lebanon seeks applicants for historian, boards

Town of Lebanon officials are seeking applicants for town historian and seats on the planning board and board of appeals for January.

All interested town residents are encouraged to apply.

The Lebanon Town Board will hold its annual organizational meeting on Monday Jan. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at town hall, 1210 Bradley Brook Road in the hamlet, and will consider all appointments at that time.

The public is invited to attend.

The historian position is an annual appointment. Planning board members serve five-year terms, and the ZBA terms are three years each.

The historian will work with the new Lebanon Historical Society and oversee town historical records and programming, as well as historical preservation.

The planning board oversees planning, subdivision and special use permit applications in the township and coordinates when necessary with the town board, code enforcement officer and other town officials on issues related to land management.

The planning board may be considering development of a comprehensive plan for the town in 2009.

The planning board meets monthly.

The ZBA reviews applications for variances when a property owner seeks to appeal a decision related to a code enforcement or planning board decision that may merit special consideration.

The ZBA meets as needed.

The state requires all planning and ZBA members to complete four hours of training annually. Training can be provided locally or in the region. The town board reimburses for workshop and mileage costs.

The town board has a policy of reviewing all applications of interest for these positions and does not automatically re-appoint those currently in the position who are coming up for re-consideration if there is interest from other candidates. Town officials try to review all interested applicants and choose the best candidates of those seeking consideration.

Those wishing to submit their name for consideration should send a letter of interest and resume to Lebanon Town Board, 1210 Bradley Brook Road, Earlville, N.Y. 13332.
