Harvard rethinks hiring policy
HARVARD – The City Council will consider amending its anti-nepotism ordinance to allow Police Chief Dan Kazy-Garey’s son to become a police officer on his father’s staff.
Under the current ordinance, the city can’t hire full time any individual who has a relative working for the city. But the ordinance doesn’t prohibit relatives from going through the interview process. Kazy-Garey’s son, of the same name, scored as the third-best candidate for an open position and is next in line because the two applicants ahead of him turned down the position.
The amendment, which council members will vote on in December, faced opposition from the Harvard Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 134 at Tuesday night’s meeting. Representing the union, Officer Todd Oczus read a statement of the union’s disapproval of the hiring process and the potential conflict of interest should the amendment pass.
