Balanced budgets Barry stepping down

Posted by Ralph Ranalli May 1, 2008 06:35 AM

Longtime Northborough Town Administrator Barry Brenner has announced his retirement.

After 35 years managing municipal governments in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, including 11 years as top public servant in Northborough, Brenner said in a statement that his retirement would be effective in the fall and his last working day will be in July.

Selectmen have praised Brenner's stewardship of the town's finances, citing the lack of Proposition 2 1/2 overrides to fund municipal services during his tenure. The town approved overrides for the schools and for capital projects, but never for town operating expenses while he was town administrator.
