The resignation of Michael Falk creates a vacancy on the Central Berkshire Regional School Committee for a representative from the town of Becket.

In accordance with the District Committee’s Agreement, "vacancies which occur on the committee shall be filled by the remaining members of the committee and the appointee filling such vacancy shall serve the unexpired portion of the term."

Any Becket resident and registered voter may apply for the appointment to fill this term, which expires in November 2014.

Those interested should send a letter of application and proof of voter registration to be filed with the District Secretary, William Cameron, P.O. Box 299, Dalton, MA 01227, or may deliver that letter and proof of voter registration to the school department’s office at 254 Hinsdale Road, Dalton.

Letters of application should be filed by Dec. 30 prior to 4 p.m., and it is anticipated that the school committee will consider applications at its meeting scheduled for Jan. 9 at Nessacus Regional Middle School, Dalton.
