Selectmen give up on Keating reversal

August 9, 2011

The Civil Service overturned the Selectmen’s suspension of Marion Keating and the Board has decided not to fight it. Mark Miller, Town Counsel, was reported ((Lynn Item, Jack Butterworth, 8/9/11, p. A6) as saying, “The Selectmen decided it was in the best interest of all the parties not to appeal the decision.” A check was issued to restore Ms. Keating’s lost pay, plus benefits. The amount was estimated to be more than $16,000. The Commissioner of Civil Service for Massachusetts stated in a scathing letter to the Town that the Selectmen had “overreached.” Both Keating and her main accuser, Sgt. Donald Decker have now both retired.
