Ron Sharpin Retires from the Water Department

by Paul Saulnier
September 5, 2013

Smiling from ear to ear, Ron Sharpin was easy to pick out of the crowd as the person with only one day left on the job.

The Water Department invited any and all who worked with Ron over the last eight years to stop by and wish him well.

Many from the various departments in town hall as well as the highway department were on hand.

David Keating, chairman of the Board of Water Commissioners, thanked Ron for his eight years of service to the department and noted his many accomplishments, including a modern metering system, renovations to the water storage tanks, the acquisition of Well 7, a new well 8 and two improvements to the treatment plant at Well 4. Ron also oversaw the creation of a hydraulic model for the water system.

Ron plans to stay active in his retirement. He will continue to teach at Tufts University helping engineers prepare for the state licensing tests. His going-away present was a gift card to Home Depot which means there is also a Honey-do list waiting for him at home.

Ron and I have been working together for about 8 years. He was the first to support meetings among department heads to promote scheduling of activities so that the Water department would not dig up new road surfaces for scheduled work Unfortunately the Board who hired (front office) him did not come to say goodby and wish him well as other town officials also did not attend.
