A special town meeting Tuesday night in Shapleigh will decide whether to combine two key positions.

The Board of Selectmen is proposing to combine the fire chief and rescue chief jobs into one position and tripling the salary.

The board is holding a special meeting to ask voters to approve the appropriation of $60,000 to fund the new position.

It currently does not have a title or a job description.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the Shapleigh Town Hall.
