Firefighters sworn in

Two new firefighters were sworn in during a ceremony before selectmen recently as the board continued its work to find a new permanent chief for the department, but was forced to hold off on hiring a new police officer. The two new firefighters, who have already been on the job for a few weeks, are Tyler Bryant and John Eaton. Town Administrator Charlie Seelig said in an interview that a screening committee will begin reviewing applicants for fire chief this week to replace William C. Carrico II, who left to become chief in Sandwich. Seelig said the town had also hoped to hire an eleventh full-time police officer but held back because there were no openings for training available at the state police academy until the fall. “We will revisit it this summer,” Seelig said. The two finalists for patrol officer were part-timers Jennifer Keegan and Joseph Cushman.
