Trustees rehire police captain
WEATHERSFIELD - Township trustees on Tuesday first accepted the retirement of police Capt. Michael Naples, then rehired him in his same position. Naples will retire March 31, return April 1, and effective June 1, he will be paid 80 percent of his former hourly rate.
He has 30 years in law enforcement with 21 years in Weathersfield.
Trustee Chairman Gil Blair said with the recent retire-rehire of three employees, which include police Chief Joseph Consiglio, Naples and a road department employee, the township will save $60,000 annually.
