NORTH ATTLEBORO — Joe Collins, the assistant to the town administrator, is moving on after getting a job in Norwood.

Collins will be the budget analyst in Norwood after spending the past year in North Attleboro.

Town administrator Michael Gallagher announced Collins’ resignation Thursday.

“I will miss Joe terribly,” Gallagher told selectmen. “He has really shown what he can do in that position.”

“He has been great for the town and he has a really bright future ahead of him,” Gallagher added.

Selectmen joined in in praising Collins, saying he was particularly adept at long-term projects, and wishing him well.

Selectman Keith Lapointe called him “a great professional.”
