Selectmen Vary “Usual” ZBA Appointment Process

There is no set way to replace a full-time member of the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), but it's customary in most towns that have alternate ZBA members to appoint the longest-serving alternate member to fill a departing full-timer's place. With Joseph Evans' recent resignation from Milford's ZBA, that would mean alternate Brian Falk was in line to become a full member.

But, Selectman Brian Murray's motion to appoint Falk received no second at the Board of Selectmen's April 11 meeting. Selectman William Kingkade then made a motion to appoint alternate member Mark Calzolaio, noting he had sent the board a letter asking to be appointed to the "regular" member's position. Falk had also sent a letter, Murray noted. But, he seconded Kingkade's motion and Chairman William Buckley made it a unanimous vote.

The board looked through its "Talent Bank" applications to see who should be appointed as the new alternate member. Murray said that former ZBA member Michael Visconti's application was the oldest in the file, meaning he should get the appointment.

Visconti himself met with the board during its "Invitation to Speak" part of the agenda, asking that he be appointed as a regular member of the ZBA. "I feel that I am the most qualified person to sit as a regular member of that board," Visconti said, adding he had only missed three meetings during his 20 years on the ZBA.

Selectman William Kingkade made a motion to appoint John Mastroianni, Jr. as the new alternate member, citing his years of experience in construction. Murray seconded that motion and Buckley made it a unanimous vote.

Buckley noted that there were more openings on the Milford Cultural Council than there were applicants, and asked his colleagues to appoint all those who had applied to serve on it. The board unanimously appointed Vincent Kiejzo, James Buckley – who Chairman Buckley said was no relation, Marcia Macri, Meghan Oliveira, Christopher Vendetti, Christopher Wilson and Michel Lalime as members.

Town Administrator Richard Villani reported that part-time Local Inspector Timothy Aicardi had resigned to take a full-time position with the Town of Bellingham beginning April 18 and that Town Engineer Vonnie Reis had resigned to take a position with the Town of Framingham, with her last day in Milford to be April 29. "We're losing two good employees," Buckley commented, noting both are moving to higher-level positions in their careers.

"It's very disappointing to lose someone of the caliber of Vonnie Reis," noted Murray.
