Retired Town Employee Honored for 23 Years of Service

Burlington officials recently recognized one town employee’s service of over two decades to the town. 

At Monday night’s Board of Selectmen meeting, Town Administrator John Petrin presented a (fixed) clock to Donald Price, who retired last month after 23 years with the Department of Public Works. 

DPW Director John Sanchez said Price was a dedicated employee. 

“He was a terrific employee for all the years he worked for us,” he said. 

The reason the clock had to be fixed is because when it was first presented to Price at a retirement party in February, it was damaged. Sanchez joked that he believed the reason we received so much snow is because the clock was broken, as the first major storm of the year occurred later that day. 

“I thought if we had it fixed it might stop snowing,” he said. 

Petrin also praised Price’s work and dedication to the department. 

“Don has been a very dedicated employee and I’ve certainly enjoyed my three years here working with him,” he said, adding that whenever the DPW was on a Board of Selectmen agenda he would be in the audience. “He was always here to support the department and his fellow department members.”
