An appreciation of our town employees

An appreciation for a job well done

I have been thinking this morning about the Town of Medfield employees who provide we residents with the services that allow our lives to continue with as much semblance of normalcy as possible at all times, but most especially in these truly unsettling circumstances we are currently experiencing. Our water goes on, public safety continues to serve us, the Transfer Station even added Sunday openings, and all the town government systems continue to function, if behind a digital curtain, all so that we residents can continue our lives.

The town employees are providing essential services, so while they likely share the same unease that envelopes us all, they continue to work their jobs.  I wanted to publicly share with the Town of Medfield employees my sincere appreciation for their efforts  and to thank them.

I am extremely appreciative of what all the town employees are doing now, working under difficult circumstances – I want to let them all know just how much this one resident, one who tries hard to observe closely the functioning of the town government so as to understand it as well as possible, truly appreciates what our team of town employees are accomplishing for we residents.

Sgt. Ryan Maxfield

This tweet below from the Medfield Police Department about the appointment of Ryan Maxfield to be a Sergeant last night at the Select Board meeting. The family photo is missing his really cute older daughter, who I gave me a high five.
Eight candidates were also named to a list to be vetted for employment by the Medfield Police Department, at least two of whom grew up in town and one of whom is a firefighter.

Congratulations to Officer Ryan Maxfield on his unanimous vote for appointment to the rank of Sergeant.

Community policing

MPD at a lemonade stand on Green Street this week –

Email sent to the Town Administrator yesterday with the above photo –

This afternoon I was happily buying a refreshing glass of lemonade at Green St. when I noticed three Medfield Police patrol cars pulling up. Jokingly I asked the kids if they had a permit for their stand. Their faces were priceless!
Great community work by three of your finest officers!

Thank you MPD!
