The board also discussed whether a second officer was needed.  CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Select Board last week felt it couldn't recommend the hiring of a second full-time police officer.    Police Chief Michael Williams had pitched the idea back in February as the town was beginning to prepare for next year's budget.
