Ready to take on challenges


Town Administrator Jack McFeeley says he is turning his attention to solving the town’s long-term problems, now that selectmen have removed the ‘‘interim’’ from his title.

McFeeley had served in an interim capacity since November, when Steven C. Boudreau left for a position in Ware.

Selectmen unanimously voted last week to give the permanent slot to McFeeley, choosing him over Sutton Town Administrator Joshua Handverger and a former Wareham town administrator, Michael Hartman.

McFeeley said one of his first priorities will be to create a five-year budget plan that includes ways to increase revenue, such as encouraging business development and selling off surplus town land.

McFeeley has not yet discussed his contract with selectmen, he said, noting the bylaws call for a salary between $85,000 and $105,000.
