KILLINGTON — The town has hired a new administrator to handle the town’s Public Works Department.
After 16 years of service, Ken Merrill, Killington’s longtime department director, retired from the full-time position and Town Manager Seth Webb recently restructured the department.
Merrill will stay on part-time.
Chester Hagenbarth has been named to the new expanded position of highway and facilities director, responsible for highways, facilities and grounds.
The town will look to its highway crew veterans, including Rick Bowen, to take on increased responsibilities as the new management team takes shape, Webb said this week.
The department’s scope of work will be expanded to include maintenance of all town facilities and grounds, including all buildings, the transfer station, lighting, equipment, walkways, wells, septic systems, parks and green spaces and recreation areas. The department will also take a larger role in handling its own administration and planning.
Hagenbarth will handle budgeting, planning, training, procurement, contracts, contracting and policy.MORE IN Vermont NewsMONTPELIER — After 42 years of on-the-job training, has U.S. Sen. Full Story
