Cadime Gets High Marks
Town Administrator Shawn Cadime has earned high marks from selectmen for his job performance. The review and evaluation was based on the goals and objectives developed jointly by the board and Cadime. Cadime was praised for maintaining effective communication with the board and for providing accurate financial forecasts and for his handling of town finances.
“Given the fact that it was a challenging year with a lot of unexpected events and issues, (Cadime) has done a good job,” Chairman Justin Sullivan said. “I think it’s a good evaluation,” noted selectman David Viera. “We’re evaluating ourselves in evaluating (Cadime), not just his performance,” said selectman Adam Petronio. “If we’re not doing our job, then how can he do his?”
Sullivan explained the evaluation was designed not just to provide feedback on Cadime’s accomplishments, but also on areas which could use some improvement. Last September, Cadime signed a new three-year contract with the town. Cadime will continue in the position through July 31, 2022. Cadime’s salary will be $173, 747, then will increase to $177, 221 on August 1, 2020, and $180, 766 on August 1, 2021. Cadime has served as town administrator since 2014. He is also a member of the Fall River City Council.
