Former Southampton Chief Falsified Payroll Records

(Southampton, MA) — State ethics officials are accusing former Southampton Fire Chief Stephen Hyde of falsifying payroll records to benefit his son. They say over the past two years, Hyde’s son was paid for station duty he didn’t perform, and for ambulance and fire calls he didn’t go out on. Hyde served as fire chief from 2006 until last June, when selectmen chose not to renew his contract. A hearing will be scheduled over the next 90 days.
