Officials on Tuesday promoted a worker in Planning & Zoning to assistant town planner, with the town’s former full-time planner overseeing the department on a part-time basis. The Board of Selectmen during its regular meeting voted 3-0 in favor of promoting Zoning Enforcement Officer Sarah Carey. “She has been a great team player,” Human Resources Director Cheryl Pickering Jones said during the meeting, held at Town Hall and via videoconference. “She’s very organized. Works well with staff and residents, and we will also have Steve Kleppin overseeing the department, working closely with Sarah and the Commission as she takes this new role on.”
First Selectman Kevin Moynihan and Selectmen Kathleen Corbet and Nick Williams voted 3-0 in favor of the promotion.
Kleppin had served as New Canaan’s planner for 11 years prior to taking the full-time planner job in Norwalk in 2016.
