I would just like to touch on the Towns total abuse of our DPW.Specifically Paul Farrar who has been there since i was a little kid.You all have seen Paul he is the guy you see out there trimming the shrubs down at the park and throughout downtown.Taking care of our town like it's his own yard!The highway dept used to just have to worry about parks and the roads in town making sure they were safe to travel.I would say in about 2001 the dpw had 6 employees when they agreed to take care of the grounds at Lura A White school the BOS hired another employee to help with this task.
well then a couple years later they decided were gonna build another school and the dpw can take care of the grounds.Soon after that they layed off #7.Then they built those soccer fields on harvard rd,they dpw can construct these and maintain them.Great,soon after that somehow they saw fit to lay of 2 more employees.One being the superintendant Joe Lynch.Ok now they are a 3 person department.Well the town has no money to keep the cemetaries mowed lets let the DPW take care of it REALLY!!Oh and lets give Paul the superintendant responsabilities with no compensation what so ever and try to set him up to fail.Well Paul Farrah will never fail you even though you the BOS have failed him.When the schools regionalized the ayer DPW now gets paid for taking care of snow removal shirley BOS still has the DPW do it.There are more janitors at the school than there are DPW workers yet they still have to take care of the grounds. Something is wrong here.
God Bless Paul Farrah
