The retirement party planned for City Manager Michael Driscoll has been postponed due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
Driscoll announced his retirement in June, and will complete nearly 30 years as Town and City Manager of Watertown. He was first hired by Watertown in 1977.
The City sent out the following announcement:
Given the current COVID-19 situation, City Council President Mark S. Sideris announced today that the planned January 29, 2022 Event honoring Michael J. Driscoll upon his retirement the end of January after serving our community for 45 years, with the last 29 years as Watertown’s City Manager, has been postponed.
We will be sure to let you know the revised date of the Event honoring Mr. Driscoll once it has been determined.
Who is going to be paying for this? Private donations?
I would expect and hope that the City of Watertown would pay to cover the costs of a reception honoring an employee with almost half a century of service!
