MILLBURY, Mass. - The Millbury Board of Selectmen approved a provisional Class II license for Perfection Auto Imports at a meeting this week.
The company owner, Felipe Jose Ribeiro is the brother-in-law of a man whose license was pulled by the board for poor business practices.
Town Manager Bob Spain asked Mr. Ribeiro if he plans on using former Integrity Motors owner Jairo Bicalho in the business. He said they will only consult with him as he had experience running it. Selectman Brian Stowell pointed out that using Bicalho isn't a good idea as he was the reason Integrity lost its business license in the first place.
The board approved a provisional six month license for Perfection Auto to ensure that the business doesn't fall into the same problems as its predecessor.
In other business the board approved, on the reccomendation of Police Chief Moore, the provisional appointment of Patrolman Thomas Hall to the rank of sergeant, effective date of April 1.
Hall will be responsible for taking all the required tests through the Civil Service to make the rank a permanent one and will be moved to head the midnight shift at the department.
Chief Moore also brought a performance evaluation that he had previously presented to the board up for a vote. Moore had met with the Police Union who agree with the evaluation as a valuable tool for both officers and the department.
Chairman E. Bernard Plante, prior to the board voting for it unanimously, said the evaluation provides the department and the town a great starting point as the department didn't have anything this detailed before.
