Yes, if you are abolishing an elected position, then, yes you need a referendum since that position would change from an elected one to an appointed one. In this case, it's a budget change, which is under the preview of the Town Board...in otherwords, the actual status of the position doesn't change, just the compensation. All salaries are set by the Town Board. If the Rec. of Taxes simply went from full time to part time and WAS STILL elected, then no referendum would hav been needed.
