According to the 2014 annual selectmen’s report, Police “Chief Hutchins will be retiring in the spring of 2015″. This is confirmed by the police chief’s report which states that “I have begun my process of retirement”.
So in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring 2015 starts on Friday, 20 March 2015 and ends Sunday, 21 June 2015.
We only bring this up due to several recent precedents, notably the hiring of a new road agent. Quoting the selectmen’s report again, “after a lengthy search and many interviews the selectmen hired …”
So in all fairness, the selectmen saved a bundle of tax dollars by leaving the road agent position open for most of the summer. Perhaps the town can look forward to an equal level of police protection and budget savings this year?
We do however note that on March 12, 2015, the selectmen finally posted an opening for building inspector. The building inspector has had a desire to be replaced since at least December 5, 2014. Reading the article posted then, we assume the selectmen have finally finished the required job description.
See here for the official building inspector application notice.
Finally, as far as we know, the Fire Department administrative assistant position has been vacant for well over two years.
Seems that people with job specific knowledge are hard to find.
