SUNDERLAND - Last Monday, Aug. 18, Ricky Timmerman was appointed to the Sunderland Select Board. His term will last until March when the seat will be open to whoever chooses to run.

The seat was vacated when David Kiernan stepped down to take a position as town administrator in Shaftsbury.

Mark Hyde, chairman of the select board, said in an email that there are still open positions in Sunderland.

"We are still in desperate need of planning board members and a zoning administrator," he wrote.

If interested in a position in Sunderland, contact Hyde at or the Rose Keough, Sunderland's town clerk, at 802-375-6106.
