New energy manager position

Below is the standard ad the state’s DOER suggests towns use to fill the energy manager position that DOER is funding in Medfield via a $75,000 grant to the town for two years.  The town gets $50,000 the first year and $25,000 the second year. Mike Sullivan envisions the energy manager position morphing into a facilities manager position for the town and continuing on.

I went by the Town House last night to sign the paperwork to accept the DOER two year grant.  Kudos to Mike Sullivan for applying for and getting the grant.

BTW, Mike has been cleaning up his desk (a historic event), and I actually saw the top surface of his desk for the first time since becoming a selectman.  He said his organizing has made people suspect that he is leaving, which is not true.
