coun Conrad L. Vandal, who is chairman of the council's DPW subcommittee, said he has been more impressed with Mr. Scott's work.
The councilman said he was stunned Mr. Kelly had shown up at a Feb. 2 walk-through of the DPW complex on Guelphwood Road, a project whose approximately $10 million price tag has been scrutinized by the council.
Mr. Vandal said the walk-through was his first time meeting Mr. Kelly, who he said offered no input on the project.

The acting chief confirmed Friday he was interested in the permanent fire chief's job, although the criteria for the position are yet to be spelled out.
"It's been a learning experience," he said Friday, "and I think it's going rather well."

Councilor Steven S. Lazo, chairman of the Protection of Persons and Property Subcommittee, said the saga of Mr. Carlisle's departure took the focus off the permanent chief search.
"I do want to start going at it," Mr. Lazo said, adding he was anxious to meet this week about the meeting with Mr. Healey, who was hired as acting town manager Thursday.
Unlike the DPW director post, the fire chief's job description is not set by the town's charter.
"We have to go over and see what we're going to set up for policy, what the criteria is going to be," Mr. Lazo said.
