“Due to the egregious and atrocious actions at the water department, I am left with no choice but to recommend these actions,” said Snow. “This move is necessary to restore the integrity and transparency at the water department, and the residents’ faith in this department.”
Selectmen Jack Cook and Stuart Dalzell added that this change was very important to bring the water department back to the people of Rowley and earn their trust again.
“The confidence [in the water department] is gone,” said Vice Chairman Bob Merry. “These things should have never happened and are a black mark on the town of Rowley at the state level. This is just horrendous.”
