The Berkshire Eagle   reports the Select Board has added searching for a new highway superintendent to its summer to-do list.

Road boss Blair Crane notified the board in writing, "with a heavy heart," he will resign effective Aug. 2. Crane's resignation letter did not give a reason for his leaving a $67,000-a-year job after two years.

Contacted by The Eagle, Crane declined to say why he was resigning, but said he is pursuing other employment opportunities.

The Cheshire resident is also vacating six other town positions he held, including tree warden and being a member of the emergency management committee.

The board will post the position and discuss hiring an interim until Crane's permanent successor is hired.

Crane says he will be available to assist the interim superintendent.
