Selectmen on Thursday gave Town Administrator William Keegan an overall rating of 4.47 on a five-point scale in his annual review.
Keegan received a 4.6 for initiatives, 4.7 for human relations, 4.8 for knowledge, 4.48 for leadership, 4.24 for planning, and 4.0 for communication, according to selectmen Chairman Carmen Dello Iacono.
“I appreciate the effort behind everything you put yourself into, and I look forward to working another term on the Board of Selectmen,” said Dello Iacono, who was re-elected to the board this month.
Keegan was praised for his knowledgeable reports, his openness to input, and for his skills at delegating. He was asked to do more following up on requests from meetings and to prepare semiannual reports for strategic planning.
“He has never wavered from doing what he believes is in the best interest of the town of Dedham,” Dello Iacono said.
Keegan said he was helped by good direction from the board and by help from his staff.
“Dedham has come a long way,” Keegan said. “It’s been very rewarding for me personally to provide services to the community.”
Reading Keegan’s report was Dello Iacono’s last act as chairman. He stepped down and was replaced by former vice-chairman and newly reelected Selectman Michael Butler. Selectman James MacDonald was selected as new vice-chairman.
