Part-time job a factor in Shirley chief’s negotiations

SHIRLEY — The sticking point in the failed contract negotiations between the town and its police chief was the chief’s part-time job as a firefighter in Lunenburg, according to documents obtained by the Sentinel & Enterprise.

On March 7, the newspaper submitted a public-records request to obtain all executive-session minutes and written contract offers between the town and Police Chief Gregory Massak.

The requested documents, received by the Sentinel & Enterprise on March 17, show the town wanted Massak to leave his job as a firefighter in Lunenburg, where he lives.

Shirley selectmen met in executive session on Dec. 16 and voted to offer Massak a one-year contract with no outside employment with Lunenburg.
