Clarkton Town HallThe Clarkton Town Board met on Tuesday night and dealt with a light agenda.

The board approved the 2017 Longevity/Vacation Sellback. Town Clerk Katrina Woods said the sellback works similar to a bonus and is equivalent to 2 percent of an employee’s pay.

The board also approved hiring Alton Boswell was the Spray Field Backup Operator.

Also, installers are anticipated to be in Clarkton on Tuesday, November 14th, to complete the installation of the camera system. There are three cameras remaining to be installed. The installers are anticipated to conduct a training session with the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office on-site in Clarkton also on November 14th, said Woods.
