Malta Officials Pick O’Neill for Planner Position

MALTA – On Monday, Feb. 5, the Malta Town Board is expected to officially vote on the selection of Jamie O’Neill for the position of Building and Planning Coordinator.

For several months, O’Neill has served in the town’s Planning Department, most recently as a senior planner. Her appointment followed the departure last year of Anthony Tozzi, and subsequent efforts to replace him that did not succeed.

Supervisor Vincent DeLucia said this week that six candidates made the final list for interviews. O’Neill’s new appointment is subject to a vote of approval Monday by the full town board.

O’Neill served for more than 16 years in the Saratoga County Planning Department. She has an abundance of knowledge in agriculture and open space, according to DeLucia.  

“That’s something our town has great interest in, especially with all of the growth and development here,” DeLucia said. O’Neill has “good background experience,” he added. 

Saratoga County Director of Planning Jason Kemper could not be reached for comment.
