MURRAY – The Town Board filled three spots in the town government on Monday.

Scott Lang was appointed to the Planning Board, John Rich was named to Board of Assessment Review and Dan Seeler was appointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

The town advertised the positions but only had three people show interest, said Mike Mele, a town councilman.

The Town Board also authorized Highway Superintendent Dirk Lammes to spend $235,000 in highway funding for 2022.

The board also rescinded a resolution to borrow money for a $119,000 to purchase a new loader backhoe. The interest rate have changed from 2.9 percent to nearly 5 percent. The town has the money in its fund balance and will pay for the loader backhoe without borrowing.
