Rockland — Former Rockland City Councilor Adam Ackor has been hired as the city's assistant code enforcement officer.

Ackor will begin work Oct. 1, City Manager Tom Luttrell said Friday, Aug. 23.

He will succeed William Butler, who resigned in June to become code enforcement officer for the town of China. Butler had worked for the city since December 2015.

Ackor served one term on the Rockland City Council, being elected in June 2016 to fill the vacancy created when William Jillson resigned. Ackor did not seek reelection in 2018.

Ackor has operated Shore Village Builders, a general contracting business, in Rockland. The company focuses on residential construction.

The Rockland man has also served on the city's Comprehensive Planning Commission, as well as the Educational Options Committee.

Ackor's hiring comes after chief Code Officer John Root announced in late June that he would be retiring. Root has not given a specific date when he will leave, but had assured the city he would remain on the job until it had someone else on staff.

The city manager said Root is contemplating staying on until Dec. 31.

Ackor will be paid $55,000 annually.
