Chief headhunters

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 24, 2007 02:31 PM


Selectmen last week agreed to set up a five-member committee to search for a new fire chief. The members will include Town Administrator Jack McFeeley, Selectmen chairwoman Mary Dunn, and three area fire chiefs.

The fire chiefs can be active or retired, but they can't be from Wrentham or any contiguous towns, McFeeley said. McFeeley said he will organize the committee as soon as possible, and the members will recommend a list of three or more candidates to selectmen sometime this fall.

Deputy Chief Jay McMorrow has served as acting chief since Robert Morrill retired this spring.
