“Cause” includes being convicted of a felony and gross negligence in carrying out his employment obligations. Anderson, town administrator since 2010, earns $124,962 a year.
Anderson, 50, has been on administrative leave since July 12, one day after an alleged incident at his Lane Road home involving a DirecTV salesman. The salesman told Derry police Anderson made unwanted sexual advances toward him during a sales call.
Anderson exposed himself to the salesman, asked him to take off his clothes and then masturbated in front of him, according to a police affidavit.
Initially, he was on paid leave, then placed on unpaid leave by the Town Council following a unanimous vote Aug. 20.
Anderson surrendered to authorities Aug. 28, nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued by state police. He was released on $2,000 personal recognizance and is to be arraigned Oct. 11 in 10th Circuit Court in Derry.
