Bedford’s Town Council is offering its taxpayers a chance to add six new employees as part of a $31.2 million budget. It wants to hire a human resources director, a police department watch commander, a police dispatcher, an equipment operator, a public works truck driver, and an administrative technician.
Oh, the budget would also make a part-time children’s library position full time. Did we mention the public works business manager? That post was filled in the middle of last year. This doesn’t count the bonding and the purchase of new dump trucks.
