STORY, PAGE 3 Fire chief and Selectmen disagree over next contract By Thomas Grillo Lynnfield is looking for new leadership in the Fire Department, but the fire chief says he’s not going anywhere. The three-member Board of Selectmen voted unanimously not to renew Mark Tetreault’s contract at its Monday meeting. But Tetreault, who has held the job since 2014 and whose five-year contract will end Dec. 31, said he disagrees with the board. In a brief telephone interview, the 54-year-old New Hampshire resident, said he was hired under the socalled “strong chief law.” As a result, he said the selectmen can only terminate him the for “cause” from the $115,000 a year post. Tetreault’s contract, provided by the town attorney, says in the event the chief is not reappointed, he is entitled to three months severance pay. Robert J. Dolan, town administrator, declined comment. While Dolan conducted a performance review of the chief, the town’s attorney declined to provide a copy saying the document is not public record.
