RUMFORD – Selectmen will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss consolidating the roles of the police and fire chiefs into a single director of public safety position, Town Manager Jim Doar said Monday.

The recommendation is part of the board’s budget discussion.

Last week, fire Chief John Woulfe announced he would leave April 6 for a job with the International Association of Fire Chiefs in Washington, D.C.

Police Chief Stacy Carter would be recommended for the new position, Doar said Monday.
