Another day, another resignation in Wrentham

More turmoil in Wrentham's town government.

Alan Phipps, chairman of Wrentham’s recycling committee, submitted his resignation to Selectmen last night in protest of their decision not to renew Maureen Osolnik’s appointment as Conservation Commission chairwoman.

Osolnik said she also plans to resign from the recycling committee, which will leave only two recently appointed members.

Four of Osolnik’s fellow conservation board members had already announced their resignations at an April 26 meeting, saying selectmen had treated Osolnik unfairly.

Another member of that board has submitted his resignation, and Osolnik said the last remaining member also plans to resign.

Town Administrator Jack McFeeley said selectmen will handle some of the conservation board’s business until new members can be appointed.

Selectmen voted 3-2 not to renew Osolnik’s appointment to the conservation board on April 24.
