STURBRIDGE — Town Administrator Shaun Suhoski is serving his fourth day of a suspension for five business days handed down by members of the Board of Selectmen Monday night, Feb. 7.

During an executive session following their meeting last Monday, four of the five board members discussed their reasons for suspending Suhoski with pay. The only board member not present was Edward Goodwin.

"In terms of the specific reason for the town administrator's temporary removal, I can only say that it is a personnel matter involving action taken by the Board of Selectmen under executive session, section 21, paragraph A-1, and is therefore not subject to public disclosure," said Board of Selectmen Chairman Thomas Creamer.

Effective Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 8 a.m., Police Chief Thomas Ford III took over as the acting town administrator. In accordance with regulations in the town charter, Ford was designated by Suhoski as the acting town administrator, and he will remain in that role until 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16.

"There is really nothing I can say about the results of the executive session, other than the fact that I was the subject of the session," Suhoski said. "Chief Ford will take over my duties, and I will be back in the office on Wednesday morning."
