Great Barrington Selectboard seeks volunteers to serve on town manager screening committee
Great Barrington — The Great Barrington Selectboard invites interested residents to apply to serve on the Great Barrington Town Manager Screening Committee.
“We look forward to having residents participate in the process of selecting Great Barrington’s next town manager,” said selectboard Chair Stephen Bannon. “It is important to us that residents are involved throughout the screening process.”
The duties of the seven-member committee include reviewing resumes of applicants, selecting approximately six to nine semi-finalist candidates, interviewing those candidates, and selecting a total of three to five finalists to forward to the selectboard for interviews. It is anticipated that the members of the committee will need to attend a maximum of four meetings to fulfill their obligations in accordance with the town’s charter. Once finalists’ names are presented to the selectboard, the committee will have completed its mission.
Great Barrington has hired the consulting firm Community Paradigm Associates to assist in the town manager search process. The consultant will guide and assist committee members in their efforts.
