Police Chief Will Be Interim Town Manager
Police Chief Jamie Calise has been appointed interim town manager while negotiations continue with Darrin Tangeman of Colorado. The select board unanimously picked Tangeman on Sept. 22 to be the new town manager after a torturous process that went on for months and involved of two rounds of executive searches. The first candidate selected by the board for the job dropped out during contract talks.
Tangeman’s own contract negotiations are underway, but there will be a gap in time before he can start, said retiring Town Manager Rae Ann Palmer. The town hall staff is already low, because the treasurer-clerk-tax collector has retired and the town planner has resigned. Thus, no one can be interim town manager on top of their own duties, Palmer said.
Police Lt. Craig Danziger ran the police department for a year before Calise was hired in 2018, so he can revert to acting chief once again, Palmer said, allowing Calise to move over to town hall temporarily.
Calise is an attorney who spent 20 years in the Warwick, R.I., police department, leaving as a captain. His starting salary in Truro was $122,500 a year.
Negotiations for Calise’s acting town manager salary were still underway at this week’s deadline. —K.C. Myers
