Still no decision on town manager
WINSTED â€” The search for a new town manager is still on. During the Board of Selectmenâ€™s regular meeting at Town Hall on Monday, Nov. 15, the board met in executive session for 40 minutes to discuss candidates for the position.
However, after coming out of executive session, Mayor Candy Perez said that the board still needs more time for a decision.
â€œWe will not be taking any action at this time,â€ Perez said. â€œWe are narrowing the field of candidates. The search committee will be making some phone calls tomorrow and will be setting up more in-depth candidate interviews.â€
In an interview after the meeting, Perez said the search committee interviewed eight candidates by phone, and the board narrowed the candidate pool down to five candidates.
The selectmen are looking for a replacement for former Town Manager Wayne Dove, who announced his resignation in August and served his last day on Oct. 29.
Earlier this month, voters approved a town charter revision that dropped the requirement for the town manager to live within the townâ€™s borders.
