The Scituate Board of Selectmen formally introduced the town’s new Facilities Manager Kevin Kelly at their meeting Tuesday night.
Kelly was selected from a pool of over 20 applicants via committee and named by Town Administrator Patricia Vinchesi.
Kelly says he’s ready to get work on the important task of managing Scituate’s 55 municipal buildings.
“The energy initiatives and cost savings are a very big ticket item for the town. So, we’ll be concentrating on that and working on the ESCO program. I’ve been in facilities management for 30 years, so feel I have a really good range of experience in evaluating buildings, finding out what buildings may need, simply maintaining buildings and creating preventive maintenance; also a lot of consolidation of service contracts, getting things all under one roof and helping people get things fixed in their buildings”, Kelly said.
Selectman Rick Murray says he can’t wait for Kelly to get to work as the town’s new facilities manager.
“You are exactly what we need. Fifty two buildings or something and many millions – and this is great. I look forward to working with you. I certainly know Trisha does and we thank the town for supporting this. It’s long overdue. Stop listening to us and get to work! This is great”!
Kelly’s experience ranges from managing Harvard University’s buildings for 15 years, Milton Academy for 13 years and most recently at Mount Ida College over the last three years.
