BRANDON — Selectman Dave Atherton is Brandon’s new town manager.
The Brandon selectboard announced its decision to hire Atherton at a busy selectboard meeting Monday night.
Heeding input from voters over the last month, the selectboard chose a local candidate to fill the position that became open when Town Manager Robin Bennett resigned last month.
Atherton will have to resign from the selectboard before taking the new job. His town manager contract will take effect April 20, after two other board members return from vacation.
