contribute's picture

The Hopkinton Police Department is asking community members to take an active role in helping us prevent crime. Unfortunately, our community has been targeted by organized thieves who target vehicles in parking lots. Aside from these thieves most of the property stolen in town is the result of crimes of opportunity involving unlocked cars and homes. We are asking everyone to partner with us to prevent property crimes.

Don’t make your valuables an easy target!

Video: Selectmen Promote Stephen Slaman to Permanent Fire Chief

The Board of Selectmen reviewed Fire Chief Stephen Slaman. Slaman has served as active Fire Chief since Chief Ken Clark retired at the end of 2015.

Slaman was one of the final 2 candidates in the initial search process for a new Fire Chief, after the other candidate, current Framingham Chief, Gary Daugherty dropped his candidacy just prior to a selectmen meeting in December. Selectmen decided to reopen the search process while appointing Slaman as interim chief.

Many residents disagreed with decision and felt it was unfair to Slaman to not give him the position permanently. The board readdressed the Fire Chief position at the January 5th meeting and decided to appoint Slaman as Fire Chief until the final day in March and in the meantime decide if the search process should be reopened.

At the April 5th meeting, Selectmen expressed satisfaction with what they saw during Stephen Slaman's time as Fire chief.

Be Refreshed – Finding Serenity in Simplicity

Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Overscheduled. Sound familiar? Today’s velocity of life can consume and control us... until our breakneck pace begins to feel normal and expected. That’s where the danger lies: when we spend our lives doing things that keep us busy but don’t really matter, we sacrifice the things that do.
