Greenwood Town Board Special Meeting
October 29, 2013
Chr. Baland called the meeting to order at 4:00 pm.
Present: Chr. Baland, Vice-Chr. Aro, Supervisors DeLuca, Doroff, Reichel, Clerk Trancheff
Chr. Baland announced:
The purpose of the special meeting is to conduct interviews of applicants for the position of Fire Chief.
The meeting was to start at 3:00 with the first interview of applicant Scott Kregness. Scott Kregness sent an email to the supervisors at 11:00 am today withdrawing his application as he has taken employment that accommodates his schedule.
Second Applicant: Dave Fazio was interviewed by the supervisors.
MOTION Aro/Reichel to appoint Dave Fazio as Fire Chief.
Supervisor Aro was pleased that Mr. Fazio was willing to branch out to our other local departments.
Supervisor DeLuca wanted somebody with more experience and qualifications to be chief and wondered if Mr. Fazio would go on to be an EMT. He added that the department members want to follow someone qualified.
Chr. Baland commented that Mr. Fazio would be going to training and would bring back that enthusiasm to the members of the department-perhaps they would be interested in pursuing the training. He added that while the job description has a time line to get certain training accomplished, it is not cast in stone-he should inform the board as to his progress and if he needs more time. Keep the board informed. He asked Dave when he would be available for a start date and that in the application he left the salary portion blank? Is the current salary rate ok?
Dave responded that while he heard that Pete would act until Jan. 1, he would be available when needed and yes the current salary is fine.
Call on Motion: YES – Aro, Baland, Doroff, Reichel
NO – DeLuca
MOTION Doroff/Reichel to adjourn at 4:35 pm.
