Officers to be sworn in at N. Andover selectmen's meeting

NORTH ANDOVER — Town Manager Andrew Maylor is expected to recommend his budget for the next fiscal year tonight.

Maylor will present the spending plan to the selectmen, who are scheduled to meet at 7 in the Town Hall. He has said he will recommend a 4 percent increase for all departments.

Five new permanent full-time police officers will be sworn in at the selectmen’s meeting. They are Julie Nigro, Michael Hennessy, Fredy Almanzar Thomas, Matthew Zahoruiko and Kara Caffrey. All five have been working as permanent reserve officers and have graduated from the police academy, according to Lt. Charles Gray, spokesman for the North Andover Police Department.

The permanent positions into which the five are being hired opened up when other officers retired or were promoted, Gray said. Their promotion to permanent full-time status will provide opportunities for other people to seek appointments as permanent reserve officers, he said.

The board will discuss regulations for mobile food vendors.
