Biggest story in Greenfield this past year is the loss of many, many dedicated and experienced police officers, firefighters, and city employees due to retirement. The total years of experience of these people probably totals in the hundreds somewhere and their experience will be missed on the streets of Greenfield. Good luck to them all from a former co-worker.
