“A long laundry list of projects were put on hold that now will systematically be addressed plus the day-to-day operation,” said Boland.
Before Boland could even organize his desk, the phone rang with complaints from residents about logging operations and noise. Boland took charge by visiting the job sites to assess the situation and inform the supervisors of complaints with trucks idling at 4:30 a.m., disturbing the neighbors.
On July 16, Boland held his first monthly department meeting.
“We exchanged ideas on how to make government more efficient. We’ll meet the Wednesday after the selectmen’s meeting to help improve communication between the departments,” said Boland.
“If the forms are not signed by Aug. 1, they won’t receive their checks,” said Boland at the July 9 selectmen’s meeting.
Boland organized a Management/Labor Safety Committee to look at ways to make operations safer and more efficient. If the town meets certain safety guidelines, it receives a 2.5 percent savings from Primex on its insurance rates.
