Abington: Selectmen to discuss reappointment of Town Manager

Abington Selectmen may determine the future of the Town Manager on Wednesday night, after a recent dust up over the manager putting himself out on the job market.

While Town Manger John D’Agostino’s contract doesn’t expire until next spring, Abington selectman Kevin Donovan says the board will take up the issue of his reappointment on Wednesday.

This comes after selectmen declared that D’Agostino had violated his contract back in April by applying for a job in Key West without asking the board’s permission. D’Agostino said he was just testing his value on the market, and then submitted a letter asking permission to apply for jobs, and the debate went public.

D’Agostino is now asking that the letter permitting him to look for work be revoked, and has asked to be reappointed– requests Donovan says the board will also look at when Abington Selectmen meet at 6 p.m. in town hall.
