iBerkshires.com  reports the Adams Selectmen have approved the ratification of a new reserve officer and a special police officer.
The Selectmen were happy to appoint new reserve Officer Christopher Lampiasi and special Police Officer Robert Mallet to the department Wednesday.
New appointments have been a regular event in the past year after the town dissolved the cumbersome Civil Service that limited who the town could hire.
Police Chief Richard Tarsa said Lampiasi is an Adams resident. He listed some of his credentials and said he has been through the reserve academy. He currently works for Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' campus security and is a part time officer in Peru.
He said he has also worked as an emergency medical technician and brings first responder experience.
He added he is up to date on all his credentials and qualifications and will be an asset to the town.
The Selectmen also appointed Natasha Bordeaux to the Conservation Commission to fill the seat vacated by Corey Bishop earlier this summer.
Bordeaux said she has always been interested in agriculture and, in high school, used to work on a dairy farm. She said she currently helps run Burnett farm with her fiance.
Selectman Joseph Nowak requested that Bordeaux attend some training to get up to speed because of the importance of the commission and possible liabilities that can fall back on the town.
