Selectmen suspended Town Manager Michael Coughlin with pay last week and said they planned to fire him “without cause.” At Coughlin’s request, selectmen scheduled a public hearing for March 13 before a final vote on his dismissal. In a resolution issued after a quick meeting before a packed audience on Wednesday, selectmen said Coughlin and the board “do not share in common the same views as to how important matters should be communicated, or as to the most effective manner in which those matters should be handled.” Coughlin, who has been on the job since Aug. 1, said through his attorney that he intends to fight the firing. - Johanna Seltz
