Warren Harbormaster eyes Bristol job


Warren Harbormaster Matt Calouro wants to become the new harbormaster in Bristol.

Mr. Calouro, who lives in Bristol, recently submitted an application to the Bristol Town Council to take the seat currently held by his father-in-law, Bristol Harbormaster Joseph Cabral. Mr. Cabral plans to retire in December.

For several years, Mr. Calouro has served both as Bristol's assistant harbormaster and as Warren's harbormaster, and in Warren earns $18,613. He is currently on medical leave in both towns due to an injury sustained on the job in Bristol.

Besides Mr. Calouro, the other applicants seeking the position are Matthew D. Hayes and Stephen Annarummo, both of Bristol.

Under Bristol's job description, the new harbormaster will be employed by the town on a full-time basis, working a flexible 40-hour work-week and will be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Candidates are expected to have five years experience, as well as hold a U.S. Coast Guard Captain's License. They must have harbormaster certification; a boating safety certificate or equivalent; appropriate law enforcement education/certification; R.I. CPR/AED life-saving certification; and a valid RI motor vehicle license.

Interviews will be held in the coming weeks.
