DPW Director Scott Kinmond Announces Resignation

Highway Agent and DPW Director Scott Kinmond announced last evening that he has accepted a position as Town Administrator in another town in NH and will resign from his position as Moultonboro Director of Public Works. He will begin his new position on January 11th.
He will remain on , at least for the short term, as our elected Road Agent and to assist in the transition.  His term expires in 2018. In the long term, the Town will need to make some decisions.
The BoS expressed their gratitude for his 26 years of service to the Town and wished him well in his new career. He will be a tough act to follow.

I think this is a huge loss for Moultonborough. As the blogger stated, he will be a tough act to follow. I wish Scott well in his new adventure.

Scott, after 26 years, and different leading roles in MoBo development, left his mark. He will be missed by many in town, as an employee and elected official.

He'll still be a resident, and can still be a wealth of information to the town.

Moving on, I can remember the "wailing and gnashing of teeth" when the former TA departed. There was even talk about it would be very difficult to recruit a replacement. Not taking away any of the fondness for Scott.

What happens is, I believe, 35+ candidates from many areas and different states apply. We got a good "keeper" from a local community that will help the BoS ... and God knows (there she is again) they need it (and us, we elected them).

Scott Kinmond is a nice guy.
Scott Kinmond is a professional.
Moultonborough does not have enough appointed and elected officials that are both a nice guy/gal and professional combined.
Mr. Kinmond was a good listener. Mr. Kinmond had common sense. Also lacking in some of our elected and appointed officials.
This will be a loss for the town of Moultonborough.
But let's not sugar coat everything.
The road budget went up dramatically under Mr. Kinmond.
The road agent position now has a secretary - added thanks to Mr. Kinmond. None was needed before Mr. Kinmond became road agent.
Let us see who is appointed interim road agent.
Shouldn't it be the next in line at the town yard?
