New Scotland hires DPW boss

Town adds position to ease workload, post will be part time to start

— The type of physical disability he has after contracting Lyme disease left him unable to perform the duties of a police officer, he said. The disability is not such that would limit him with his ability to perform the duties of his new position, he said.

“It was bad. I almost died, frankly,” LaChappelle said. “I go out and about every single day and I work hard. My only restriction is I cannot work in the police or fire system again, but any job in the public and private sector I can hold.”

LaChappelle said he is looking forward to overseeing several developments in the pipeline at the town and is excited to be a part of the town’s growth.

“It more than piques my interest,” he said. “Being on the ground floor is interesting to me.”
