The Board of Public Works, which has overseen the Department of Public Works since it was created in 2004, will disband at the end of this month.
The Board of Selectmen will take control of the department. Members of the public works board met with selectmen last Monday to discuss unfinished business, including the hiring of a supervisor who
will work under the departmental director and oversee day-to-day operations.
The public works department was formed by merging the town’s highway and water departments, and Town Administrator Jack Hathaway said the sharing of equipment and staff has led to increased efficiency. The department’s budget has decreased each year since it was formed.
