A resident of Livermore Falls, he started with the department Monday. His salary is $80,000.

Selectmen voted in December to appoint him to the position.

Haroon has 18 years in law enforcement. He most recently was director of public safety for Ferris State University in Michigan.

He succeeds acting Chief Michael Adcock of Livermore who left in August to be a sergeant at the University of Maine at Farmington. He said previously he would stay on part time if needed.

In other business, selectmen approved a site plan review application for Newman Homes of Augusta to renovate the former Livermore Falls Middle School at 1 Highland Ave. into 30 low-income apartments.


Brandon Roberge, president of the company, said he is working on a source of funding and if he doesn’t get it, he has a second option that could be used to develop assisted living apartments for older people.

In another matter, Town Manager Carrie Castonguay said she hired Todd Donaldson of West Paris as code enforcement officer. He will start Feb. 26.

He was a contractor for 13 years and is a retired as a law enforcement officer. He moved to Maine from Lowell, Massachusetts, Castonguay said.

Castonguay’s husband, Roland Castonguay, of Jay has been interim code enforcement officer since Brandon Hobbs of Jay resigned in November. Roland Castonguay is supervised by the police chief to avoid a conflict of interest.

In other announcements:

• A benefit supper for the Fire Rescue Department will be held from 4-7 p.m. Saturday at the Fire Station.

• The Town Office will be closed on Feb. 19 for Presidents Day, and March 5 for the statewide presidential primary. Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fire Station.
