Personally, I would like to see this search put off until the Collins study is complete. The Collins study committee was set up to study the feasibility of merging the Hamilton DPW, the Wenham DPW and the HWRSD Facilities workers. Similar to how the combined Grounds and Parks are done. This study was paid for through a grant from, I think, the state. Why not wait until the study is complete?
