GROVELAND — Finance and Personnel Director Denise Dembkoski is pleased to announce that the Town of Groveland has a new Highway Superintendent, Renny Carroll.
Carroll replaces long-time Road Commissioner, Robert Arakelian. Arakelian was elected as the town’s Road Commissioner in 1995, and retired this past November. Since then he has worked part-time as the town has searched for a new person to take on the role.
Carroll’s first day as the town’s appointed Highway Superintendent was Monday, March 18.

Carroll’s responsibilities in Portsmouth included supervising and training skilled and semi-skilled workers, overseeing the Paving and Maintenance Division, interviewing and hiring new employees, snow removal and operations, overseeing road repairs and being in charge of the paving/maintenance program. He worked for the city for approximately one year.
From 2009 to January 2018, Carroll also previously worked as a foreman/supervisor for the City of Beverly, where his duties also included overseeing the Paving and Maintenance Division, training new hires, snow and ice operations and overseeing road repairs, among other responsibilities.
