First, I certainly hope that Mr Troiano recovers from this terrible accident.

But second, it brings to mind discussions going on in Lies-in-Ashland.Com re employees that have take home cars. I wonder if Mr Troiano had plans to relocate to the Hopkinton area, if he had a town car or a personal car and what the liability will be for Hopkinton if a town car and Mr Troiano is determined, as would seem likely, to be the responsible party?

On the lower level of concern, if a town car, it must cost Hopkinton a bundle for his milage/gas doing that drive if things are as they would appear on the surface (meaning I don't know what his hiring /contract arrangements were.

Hopkinton selects first town manager

Anthony Troiano signed a three-year contract this week to be Hopkinton's first-ever town manager. His hiring is contingent on approval of funds at a special Dec. 21 Town Meeting. His annual salary will be $100,000 if approved and Jan. 1 is his tentative start date.

Troiano, a 50-year-old East Sandwich resident, has been working as assistant town administrator in Burlington since 2004. In an interview this fall with the Globe, he said the biggest challenge of the new job would be balancing growth, a tight budget, and residents' desire to preserve rural character and good schools.

The new post was established after a townwide vote in May that overwhelmingly approved a new charter, which swaps the existing executive secretary position for the more powerful town manager post.

Longtime Executive Secretary Ted Kozak was not included among the finalists despite protests from some selectmen.

Muriel Kramer, the chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen, said she hopes Kozak will stay on for the first two months of the new town manager's tenure to streamline the transition, but the selectmen are still negotiating that arrangement with him.
