    (a) In addition to all other offices which may be filled by appointment by the Selectboard pursuant to State law or this chapter, the Selectboard shall appoint the following Town officers, who shall serve for such terms as the Selectboard may establish in its act of appointment or until the office otherwise becomes vacant:

    (1) A Town Treasurer who shall not simultaneously hold any elective office within Town government. The Town Treasurer shall be responsible for the collection of current taxes. The Town Treasurer shall be paid an hourly wage.

    (2) A Town Clerk who shall not simultaneously hold any elective office within Town government. The Town Clerk shall be paid an hourly wage.

    (3) A Collector of Delinquent Taxes. Unless the Town shall vote under 24 V.S.A. § 1530 to pay the Collector of Delinquent Taxes a salary in lieu of fees and commissions, the Collector shall be compensated by the eight percent commission on delinquent taxes set forth in 32 V.S.A. § 1674(2), or such other percentage as may be set by a majority of voters present and voting at an annual or special meeting in accordance with 32 V.S.A. § 1674(3).

An officer appointed hereunder shall be eligible to apply for reappointment at the expiration of his or her term of office but failure by the Selectboard to make such reappointment shall not be construed as discharge from employment.
