The Town Board is poised to order head planner Jefferson Murphree back to work this week. But he'll be coming back to a new position in a new department — and he will no longer be a department head.

Jamesport resident and former town attorney has been at the helm of the Riverhead Community Development Agency for 18 months as a provisional employee.
