THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 Page 7 Firefi ghter Nick Hooper promoted to Lieutenant FUNDING | FROM PAGE 7 The CPC has recommended that Roosevelt Park receive $250,000 this year for field investigation, design work, permitting and preparation of contracts for the removal and disposal of urban fi ll soil, fencing and draining systems. It’s the beginning of a project that will create more open space and a versatile athletic field in one of the city’s low-to-moderate-income neighborhoods that needs this type of resource. So, what’s not to love about this project? Kathleen Sullivan, a fi fthCity Clerk Tom Brennan issues the oath of offi ce to Lt. Nick Hooper. (Photos Courtesy of the City of Malden) M ayor Gary Christenson, Fire Commissioner Emery Haskell, Fire Chief Kevin Finn and Deputy Fire Chief Bill Sullivan recently celebrated the promotion of Firefi ghter Nick Hooper to Lieutenant. Nick’s parents and sister were also in attendance when he was commended for reaching this milestone because of his hard work for the department. Commissioner Haskell invited Nick’s father, Michael Hooper, to pin him following City Clerk Tom Brennan giving the oath and swearing him in. grade science teacher at Salemwood and a member of Concerned Citizens of Malden, was at the City Council meeting this week to voice one very big concern about the proposed renovation of the park – the artifi cial turf for Roosevelt fi eld. Sullivan objected to using Malden’s preservation funds for artifi cial turf, and, in fact, none of the city’s preservation money will go toward the turf. Community Preservation Act (CPA) rules do not allow preservation money to be spent on acquiring or maintaining artifi cial turf. The roughly $610,000 needed for the artifi cial fi eld will be covered by a combination of a state grant and a private donation.
