Hawley seeks third selectman
Special election planned
HAWLEY — The town has lost its senior selectman, and the remaining board members have voted to hold a special election to fill the vacant seat.
A date has not yet been set for the special election, although it will probably take place in early March. The next selectmen’s meeting is scheduled for Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Office.
Selectman Richard G. Desmarais, 80, died on Christmas Eve. He has served on the Board of Selectmen since 1998, according to Recorder records.
