Salem selectmen try to navigate rules on performance reviews
Selectman Michael Lyons raised the issue at this week’s board meeting and requested the board get an opinion from the town’s legal counsel in writing.
Lyons asked Town Manager Keith Hickey if town legal counsel agreed with that opinion.
“When there is an issue with my performance, I can request that I be notified and if I choose to, have that done in public,” said Hickey. “If you’re compiling my annual evaluation, I can ask that that be done in public.”
“That’s what I’m looking for,” said Lyons. “But where is that opinion? That is what I have trouble with.”
McBride said he agrees that the performance reviews can be held in public if the town manager requests it, but said there are some questions about where the actual performance review begins and ends.
Lyons said he would also like a clearer opinion on whether the board has the right to discuss a town manager’s request for a public session while the board is in a nonpublic meeting.
