A Coastal Star of the Month Ocean Ridge police Lieutenant Chris Yannuzzi stepped up to bat when illness and injuries hit the town management team. In addition to his normal duties as an investigator in the Police Department, Yannuzzi agreed to oversee the coordination of the move into temporary trailer offices and then the second relocation into the new town hall. Yannuzzi’s responsibilities included coordinating with a myriad of contractors and making multiple decisions on furniture, electrical, computer and police data systems. It was a difficult and time-consuming responsibility, but he did it willingly. Thanks to his efforts — and the cooperation the town received from the contractors — the construction and move went smoothly and were completed on schedule.
Thanks to the efforts of Yannuzzi, the commission and staff, Ocean Ridge citizens appear to have hit a home run with their new facility.
Ocean Ridge Town Manager Ken Scheck and Police Chief Ed Hillary nominated Chris Yannuzzi to be A Coastal Star.
