HUDSON: City Council approved three resolutions commending three long-term city employees at the meeting on Wednesday.
Lieutenant Sean McAleese was thanked for 20 years of service with the Hudson Police Department.
McAleese began working for the department in November of 1992 as a patrol officer and was promoted to police lieutenant in 2005.
He has served as the DARE officer, supervisor of the detective bureau, and he is currently the uniformed patrol commander.
Council also honored Beth L. Radle, who is retiring as executive assistant to the chief of police.
She began working for the department in August of 1991. While thanking her for 21 years of service, Mayor William Currin said that "her former role will be filled, but she will never be replaced."
A third employee was also commended by resolution. Douglas J. Anderson is retiring from the service department, where he most recently served as assistant public works superintendent.
Anderson was involved with upkeep of roads, storm water control, snow and ice control and the leaf pick-up program, among other duties.
He began with the department in 1997 as a maintenance technician.
