my two cents

The more I think of it, the more I think the energy coordinator should just be a paid position within the town.

It's beyond the scope of what should be expected of a volunteer, and not quite right for committee work, either. The position needs low turnover, if possible.

I think the previous arrangement of volunteer/non-profit worked, but was cobbled together rather than planned, per se. I see no reason to spend time and effort trying to re-create that odd configuration, though. This is the opportunity to restructure and make it part of our town.


I was thinking the same

I was thinking the same thing. This seems like quite a lot of work and should certainly have some kind of salary or stipend attached to it. I don't think the town will get a qualified person for this without there being some consideration for the fact that this goes beyond what the usual "volunteer" position requires.
