Marlborough – Douglas Scott of Barre, presently serving as the city’s interim building commissioner, has been appointed by Mayor Arthur Vigeant to fill the position for a three-year term. He asked city councilors to approve his recommendation at the July 25 meeting.
“Mr. Scott has a long history in the construction industry, working not only as an inspector and a commissioner, but also as a project manager for a construction company and as a consultant for contractors,” the mayor stated in his communication to the council.
“I believe this breadth of experience prepares him well to protect Marlborough residents as our commissioner and as well as the customer service skills to work in partnership with contractors and developers doing business in the city,” he stated.
Councilors will act on the recommendation at the next council meeting.
The mayor also asked councilors to approve several appointments to city boards and commissions. They include: Dr. Joseph Tennyson to the Board of Health; Thomas Pope to the Zoning Board of Appeals; reappointment of Robin Williams and James Griffin to the Board of Health, and Elizabeth Evangelous to the Board of Registrars for a three-year term. They were referred to the Personnel Committee for review and recommendation to the full council.
