Former Hamilton DPW Head Hired in Salem

John Tomasz has been hired in Salem and will begin there next month.

The head of Hamilton's Department of Public Works has been hired as the new director of Public Services in Salem, the Salem News reports on Tuesday morning.

John Tomasz started in Hamilton in 2008 after 10 years as the DPW director in Rockport. Tomasz, who lives in Newburyport, has 30 years of experience in public works and engineering, the News reports.

Tomasz will replace Richard Rennard and be paid $105,000, the News reports. He is scheduled to start in Salem on Feb. 19.

In recent years in Hamilton, Tomasz lead a project to replace aging water lines in the downtown and began a project to make improvements to the town's sidewalks.

Last summer, he also began improvements to several town roads using state Chapter 90 money, including a complete rebuilding of Gregory Island Road.

Interesting, He is starting at $15000 more then Dick Rennard was making and $5000 more then the Mayor. Nobody should be making more then the Mayor. Wouldn't it have been cheaper to hire from with in? Dicks 2nd in command Ron Malionek comes to mind . "a project to replace aging water lines in the downtown and began a project to make improvements to the town's sidewalks" What?... What what?.
