Greenfield Civil Service Hearing Tonight

(Greenfield, MA) – A proposal to take the police and fire chief’s position out of Civil Service will be the focus of a Greenfield Town Council Subcommittee hearing tonight. The council’s subcommittee on Community Relations and Education will meet at 6:30 at the Main Street planning offices to allow the public a chance to comments on Mayor Bill Martin’s request for special legislation to change the police and fire chiefs from Civil Service to at-will appointees. The change is being opposed by members of both departments. The full council will vote on the request at its October meeting.
