The Town Board of the Town of New Berlin recognizes that it is desirable to hire employees who are residents of the Town. The Town Board further recognizes that the most qualified candidates may not always be residents of the Town of New Berlin. Therefore, it is in the best interests of the Town of New Berlin that nonresidents be permitted to work as employees of the Town of New Berlin in specific appointed positions.
