Town ready to hire animal control officer

Continue reading below

The town could soon have a new animal control officer. The position has not been filled on a permanent basis since a resignation nearly a year ago. The post was not filled due to budget constraints and to allow Town Manager Michael Dutton to explore the possibility of Bridgewater using another community’s officer on a contract basis, an idea that never came to fruition. Eric Badger, the town’s health agent, served as the interim animal control officer until early this spring. Dutton said the town budgeted funds to hire a permanent officer in the fiscal year that began July 1. He said he has been interviewing candidates and he expects to make an appointment soon.
