Selectmen have appointed a new treasurer/collector for the town.
Jeffrey Cannon, who has worked in similar positions in Plymouth, Nantucket and Barnstable, is the first person to be permanently appointed to the job since March 2005, said Town Administrator Charles Aspinwall.
Staff members and outside consultants had filled the position on a temporary basis since then.
Aspinwall hopes that Cannon's appointment means the department will be able to add more services, such as an online bill payment system, and improve existing services. Cannon was chosen from three finalists for the position.
