Rehire of Bourbon officer causes stir

September 12, 2012

By Daniel Riordan
Managing Editor

BOURBON — There was no question in the standing-room only crowd Tuesday night that Ben McIntyre should be rehired as a Bourbon police officer.
But the crowd became agitated and voiced its displeasure when the town’s council decided to rehire McIntyre without putting him at his prior seniority.
At last month’s town council meeting, the council accepted McIntyre’s resignation as he attempted to take on another job.
According to the town council, McIntyre returned a week later.
