Filling in Health and Conservation
Town Administrator Rich Waldo hired two people to fill the now separate health and conservation agent positions.
Waldo received support from the select board during its Oct. 19 meeting to extend a formal offer to Heath Martinez for the health agent job, and to Beth Pyles for the conservation agent job.
Martinez has a background in health and sanitary science. According to Waldo, he is a licensed dietician and has been a nutritionist with the Mass. Dept. of Public Health.
Pyles has worked as a land use attorney for various agencies in Boston and Phoenix, Waldo said. He said Pyles understands “the necessity of compliance to state and local laws and regulations,” Waldo wrote to the Independent, and “will provide the conservation commission with policy expertise necessary to make informed decisions.”
The hiring committee consisted of Waldo, interim Assistant Town Administrator David Colton, Human Resources Director Christine Ezersky, and chair of the conservation commission Leon Shreves for the conservation agent position.
Martinez will begin work on Monday, Oct. 30 and Pyles will start on Monday, Nov. 6. They will be assisted by Gary Locke, who Waldo recently hired as administrative assistant to the building and health departments after Jeanne May retired in August.
