New Tilton, Northfield fire chief to meet public
Michael W. Sitar Jr., 55, a 32-year member of the Tewksbury, Mass., Fire Department, where he presently holds the rank of captain, will be officially sworn in at 12:15 p.m. as part of a two-hour open house at the fire station.
Sitar, whose salary will be in the mid to low $70,000-per-year range, was chosen from 21 applicants, according to Fire Commissioner Pat Clark. Sitar officially takes over Monday, and he has been given time to find a home in one of the two towns, Clark said.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity, I’m honored to have been chosen,” he said Thursday.
“We hope people come to see it, it’s a very important piece of equipment for our towns and for mutual aid,” Clark said.
