By CAROLYNE VOLPE CURLEY

March 25, 2013 at 8:11 PM

WEST CALDWELL, NJ - On Wednesday of last week, the Township of West Caldwell issued a memorandum titled "2013 Staffing Plan" which details the intention of the governing body to name Michael J. Bramhall as a temporary Acting Administrator following the recent departure of Administrator Jock H. Watkins. Bramhall currently serves as Chief of Police for the West Caldwell Police Department and will continue to serve in this capacity during this time period, as well as after the Administrator position is permanently filled.

The full text of the memorandum is as follows:

     The West Caldwell Governing Body's Legal and Personnel Committee has been developing a staffing plan for the  Township of West Caldwell over the past few months. With the recent announcement of Jock Watkins' departure from the Township, we have modified our plan to provide for both short-term and long-term coverage with regards to the Township Administrator position. 

It is the intention of the Governing Body to act on a resolution naming Michael J. Bramhall as Acting Administrator for the Township of West Caldwell, effective April 3, 2013. Mr. Bramhall will serve in this position as we advertise, conduct interviews and ultimately hire a permanent replacement. The balance of the committee's proposed staffing plan will be communicated in the near future. 

On behalf of the Township of West Caldwell, we thank Jock Watkins for his dedicated and loyal service to West Caldwell, and wish him the best of luck and success in his future endeavors. Additionally, we thank Michael Bramhall for filling in, and we are confident he will provide exceptional support in the interim. Lastly, we thank all employees for your continued hard work, patience and anticipated cooperation during this transitional period and beyond.
