PALERMO — Selectmen have only themselves left to appoint to their other job to complete this year’s slate of town officials.

The selectmen are also Palermo’s Fair Hearing Authority. However, the appointment process requires all three board members, so a majority of two can carry each vote without the nominee voting for him– or herself. Selectman Paul Cowing was on vacation Thursday.

Chairman Sophia Glidden and Selectman Harry Dean Potter appointed:

* Ann Helms to the Planning Board for three years, succeeding David Parkman, who declined reappointment;

* Darryl McKenney as code enforcement officer;

* Donald Harriman as plumbing inspector;


* Peter E. Nerber as animal control officer and Peter A. Nerber and Jean Royal as deputies;

* Patricia Glidden as health officer, for three years; and

* Dean Willoughby as fire chief, Mark Curtis as first assistant chief and Mike York as second assistant chief, as voted by the volunteer fire department.

The Planning Board is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m. April 28, McKenney said, to hear Merton Hickey’s request for an after-the-fact permit for road-building through wetlands off Banton Road.
