LITCHFIELD (AP) — The community of Litchfield has fired its town manager.

Town manager Michael Byron, who is also a city councilor in Augusta, was fired by the board of selectman on Tuesday.

Board chair Rayna Leibowitz told the Kennebuc Journal ( that it was in the best interest of the town to fire Byron, but she wouldn’t specify the reasons for his dismissal.

She said only that some residents had “expressed displeasure with him.”

The 76-year-old Bryon was hired in Litchfield in January 2008. He said he’ll miss the people he worked with.

Bryon said selectmen told him they were dissatisfied with what he called “very minor things,” including that he hadn’t finished redrafting the personnel policy or evaluated the front office staff.
