Natick has posted a call for volunteers to serve on a Town Administrator Screening Committee. The Committee will be tasked with putting together a list of candidates whom it believes to be best suited to perform the duties of Town Administrator. From there, the Select Board will appoint a Town Administrator from the names submitted.
The composition of the nine-member Screening Committee is as follows:
- (1) Member designated by the Planning Board
- (1) Member designated by the School Committee
- (1) Member designated by the Finance Committee
- (1) Member designated by the Personnel Board
- (1) Member designated by the Moderator
- (4) Members appointed by the Select Board
The Select Board intends to make appointments to the Screening Committee at their meetings between December 9 and December 16, 2020. Anyone interested in serving on the Natick Screening Committee should apply no later than 5pm on December 7, 2020.
Natick earlier this month posted the job opening for Town Administrator, a position being vacated on Dec. 28 by Melissa Malone, who is resigning after two-and-a-half years on the job.
Once Malone leaves, Deputy Town Administrator Jamie Errickson will serve as acting Town Administrator until a selection is made. The Acting Town Administrator will not be considered for appointment to the permanent Town Administrator position.
Natick Town administrators have drawn a salary in the $190K-$200K range in recent years.
