Selectmen voted 3-2 Monday not to reappoint Town Manager John D’Agostino when his contract expires April 26. D’Agostino, hired in 2010 and paid $120,000 annually, will not receive a severance package because he violated a contractual requirement, according to Selectman Kevin Donovan, “by failing to work with town boards and committees with harmony and respect.” While Selectman Michael Franey agreed that D’Agostino “ruffled some feathers” and “wasn’t a good fit with the town,” he said he voted against Donovan’s motion because he thought D’Agostino should get severance pay. The other opposing vote was cast by board chairman Andrew Burbine. On Tuesday, D’Agostino said only, “It was the board’s prerogative and they exercised it.”
