As for other town employees, Anderson said, there are the routine background criminal checks required and other policies in place if there are reasonable suspicions about other behavior.
Human Resources Director Larry Budreau will be invited to come to a future Town Council meeting, Anderson said, to give the public an overview of the town’s policy when it comes to drug and alcohol testing for certain potential employees.
For Gill, it’s a chance to see a policy put in place that would cover all town workers.
“The Council can take it up for further discussion or they can do nothing,” he said. “My next step would then be to go get 100 signatures on the petition. I would just like to see something happen.”
