Fremont settles suit by former police chief
Selectman Greta St. Germain, board chairman, confirmed that a settlement has been reached, but that the terms of the deal have not yet been released.
Janvrin, 66, was fired after nearly 23 years as chief and filed a wrongful termination suit in October.
In their notice of dismissal, selectmen said Janvrin was “physically unstable in the field” and had a “confrontational” attitude toward other officers, among other things.
“The matter has been resolved and I really can’t disclose any more at this time,” said the town’s attorney, Charles Bauer of the Concord law firm Gallagher, Callahan & Gartrell PC.
“We have resolved the chief’s case through settlement, but I am not able to reveal the terms pursuant to the agreement,” he said.
St. Germain said six people applied for the part-time position. After the committee offers its recommendations, she said selectmen will conduct interviews before making a final decision. The board plans to hire a new chief by Aug. 1.
