The Adams Selectmen approved new Police Chief Scott Kelley's contract and his first day on the job will be Tuesday, Jan. 19
iBerkshires.com reports the three-year contract was approved after a brief executive session at the tail end of Wednesday's meeting.
Interim Police Chief Troy Bacon had declined to move into the permanent position leaving the Selectmen to undergo another search for a permanent chief. In early December, the  board voted to appoint Kelley, who is chief of police at South Carolina's Spartanburg Community College.
Kelley's starting annual salary will be $88,317.
