There are plenty of checks and balances.  I am appointed clerk/treasurer
almost ten years with two assistants.  We also have a finance director
who has a bookkeeper and accounts payable clerk.  Above us is the
manager..  AP clerk cuts the checks per the warning, I sign, and the
bookkeeper balances the bank statements.  We cash out each night and
don't leave until it balances with what we took in for the day.
Bookkeeper closes day out after we balance.  No room for error.   We
have department head meetings and keep each other up on what each
department is doing.  There is absolutely no apathy in this town.

It doesn't seem there is any check and balance - the result of apathy,
maybe?

Where is the check and balance with an appointed clerk?

	In the City of Rutland, the Charter provides for the Clerk to be
appointed by the mayor and approved by the Board of Aldermen

	Anybody

	Can a town with a Charter choose to have the Town Clerk
appointed by the manager or selectboard rather than be elected?

	If the answer is yes, which town (s) have done this.
