Police Chief contract extended through FY26
Chief Matt Stone agrees to another three years
By Theresa Knapp
The employment contract for Holliston Police Chief Matthew Stone has been extended for another three years.
At its meeting on June 20, the Holliston Select Board announced that Chief Stone had agreed to remain in his position for FY24 to FY26.
“We’re proud and pleased this evening to announce the contract extension with the chief through June 30, 2026,” said Select Board Chair John Cronin.
Stone was appointed chief in 2017 after serving several years with the department.
The contract includes an evergreen clause which means the agreement automatically renews, without renegotiation, for a set period of time unless one party indicates it does not want to renew.
Cronin said the clause “seamlessly allows us to keep, in this case, Chief Stone around,” and thanked Stone for his service.
Select Board member Ben Sparrell said Stone was an asset to the community, and member Tina Hein also had high praise for him.
