The Amherst Town Board Monday postponed appointing Charles O. Brown, longtime assistant planning director, to planning director.
Sources said that in return for supporting Brown, Supervisor Susan J. Grelick wants to pick his assistant.
Two current Planning Department staffers are under consideration for the No. 2 post, Gary Black, Ms. Grelick's choice, and Daniel Howard, whom Brown prefers, sources said.
Both appointments are the supervisor's, subject to Town Board confirmation. The board also:
