Town Council to Vote on Interim Fire Chief Monday

by | Nov 3, 2017

By Elizabeth F. McNamara

In a highly anticipated move since Town Manager Gayle Corrigan expressed her lack of confidence in Fire Chief Russell McGillivray in Superior Court in September, the Town Council will vote on an unnamed interim fire chief at its meeting Monday night.

Also on the agenda, the council will discuss ending the town’s role as host community to the Community Development Block Grant consortium, which consists of most southern Rhode Island communities and is managed by Geoff Marchant out of an office in Town Hall.

In addition, the council will consider releasing “executive session meeting minutes and supporting documentation for prior discussions concerning collective bargaining with the IAFF related to the Council’s consideration and subsequent adoption of the 2016-2019 collective bargaining agreement.”

The Town Council will convene in executive session starting at 6 p.m., followed by the regular session, at Swift Community Center.
