City Council votes 4-0 to appoint Luttrell acting manager
Rockland — City Councilors voted 4-0 Monday, Jan. 6 to appoint Finance Director Tom Luttrell as the acting city manager.
Luttrell is serving in the position following the resignation in December of James Smith. Luttrell has served in the position on a temporary basis before in late 2011 and early 2012.
Councilor Eric Hebert made the motion to appoint Luttrell, and it was supported by all of the councilors present. Councilor Frank Isganitis was absent from the meeting.
In other business it was noted at the meeting that some Main Street businesses have complained about problems with snow removal from sidewalks and parking spaces downtown. Mayor Larry Pritchett went through some of the emails and correspondence from downtown merchants, who in some cases said streets and sidewalks in Camden were clear on days when it was more difficult to get around the snow in downtown Rockland.
