Ex-Center Harbor fire chief cites pay issue for resignation
Selectman Harry Viens said the board sees things differently, but board members can’t discuss a personnel matter, and the board is hesitant to speak now about what the circumstances surrounding Schlemmer’s departure without having the town’s attorney give advice.
“We obviously have a contrary account of what happened,” he said. “But he is represented by an attorney now, so we need to be as well.”
Viens disputed that, and said the board offered a meeting shortly after he resigned.
Schlemmer said the board “lacks transparency” on this issue.
“In this way, the board has avoided the obligation to inform the taxpayers of my full-time status, avoided paying me for my time and the benefits other full- time employees of the town enjoy, but still managed to maintain a full-time chief by any other name. Not only is this generally unfair and lacks transparency for the townspeople, but as it turns out, this creative pay method is not entirely legal.”
