Conservation Commission gets a new member

by susan on March 16, 2012

At their meeting on Tuesday night, the Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to appoint Rebecca Waterfall to the town’s Conservation Commission. Waterfall will fill the vacancy left when longtime commission member Dick Upjohn passed away earlier this year.

Waterfall was a member of the Ladder Truck Committee that researched and recommended the purchase of a new ladder truck for the fire department. She spearheaded the Fire Ball which raised $83K in private funds to help finance the purchase.

Carl Guyer, a member of the Green Technology and Recycling Committee, also interviewed for the spot on the Conservation Commission.

Selectman John Rooney called both Waterfall and Guyer “exceptionally qualified individuals,” but said Waterfall would be his choice. Selectman Bill Boland agreed, saying the town would benefit most from having Waterfall on the Conservation Commission while having Guyer continue his good work on the Green Technology Committee.

Waterfall’s term will run through June 2014.
