West Newbury

Animal control officer to be shared

Continue reading below

Until the end of June, the town will share an animal control officer with Newburyport. This month, selectmen appointed Matt Lipinski, Newburyport’s animal control officer, as an interim animal control officer and special police officer in West Newbury. He will work a maximum of 18 hours a week, be paid $22 an hour, and will report to Police Chief Lisa Holmes. Officials say they would like to enter into an agreement in which Newburyport provides animal control services for West Newbury, an arrangement that requires Town Meeting approval. Selectmen plan to present a warrant article to voters at the spring Town Meeting, with an agreement to begin on July 1, the start of fiscal 2014. Lipinski will fill a gap in coverage since the resignation of longtime animal control officer Madelyn Cirinna on Jan. 1.
