Town Manager Richard T. Reed informed the Selectmen on Monday night that he would be retiring in the summer.

Reed, who has served in the position for nearly 30 years, gave no specific reason for his decision other than wanting to spend more time with his grandchildren. He will soon be 65 years old, he said, and “it is time for me to retire.”

The Selectmen took the opportunity to praise Reed for his service and to thank him. “We couldn’t do what we do without you,” said member Margot Fleischman. Reed pledged to work with the Selectmen on a smooth transition and a formal end date.

Editor’s Note: In a telephone interview later on Monday evening, incoming Chair of the Selectmen William Moonan noted, “Rick Reed’s tenure has marked a time of significant growth for Bedford. As a team player most often working behind the scenes, his influence will long be felt in town.”
