NORWICH – Mike Gibbon of Wells Road in Norwich has been appointed highway superintendent for the Town of Norwich, effective April 1.
Gibbon’s appointment came at a special town board meeting called Tuesday afternoon.
Gibbon replaces longtime superintendent Stanley Foulds, who accepted a position with the Norwich City School District late last year.
“After (considering) eight applicants, we feel Gibbon not only scored the highest throughout our interview process, but we feel he is the right choice for the position,” said Supervisor David Law.
The position, as outlined by the board, entails maintaining the town roads, being on call 24 hours a day, knowing how to calculate budgets and having computer technology, public relations and management skills.
