The CEO/LPI serves as staff to the Planning Board and Board of Appeals and as liaison to relevant State and local agencies.
The CEO/LPI is responsible for administration and enforcement of all municipal ordinances governing land use and State laws/regulations regarding automobile graveyards, junkyards and dangerous buildings, subsurface and internal plumbing as well the town’s public landing ordinance.

The ability to deal with the public courteously and firmly under adverse or strained conditions is essential. Excellent organizational, computer, and written and oral communications skills are desired.
