Two highway workers promoted


LIVERMORE — Selectpersons voted Monday to have interim highway foreman Roger Ferland of Livermore stay in the position permanently, town Administrative Assistant Kurt Schaub said Tuesday.

The board conducted interviews of two staff candidates for the vacant position in separate executive sessions, he said.

Both are well qualified, Schaub said.

Ron Greenwood of Livermore, a driver/laborer II, was promoted to driver/laborer I, he said.

Both were candidates for the position that became vacant after the board fired the former highway foreman in April.

Both Ferland and Greenwood had their hourly wages increased while picking up extra duties while the Highway Department was short handed.

Ferland‘s pay increased from $14.50 an hour to $18 an hour, and Greenwood’s wage was increased from $13.09 per hour to $15.

The men will keep the increased wages in their new positions.
