WORCESTER, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to place Fire Chief David F. Cobb on administrative leave without pay, effective immediately, because of pending drug charges in Worcester and Gardner District Courts.
"At this time, I think it's the prudent and appropriate thing to do," Town Administrator John Lebeaux said last night.
