The search for a town administrator is back on more than a year after the last administrator left. reports the Selectmen on Wednesday voted to reform the Town Administrator Search Committee and have it begin reviewing applications immediately.

The town has been without a permanent leader since Town Administrator Tony Mazzucco left in November 2017. Officials have relied on Director of Community Development Donna Cesan to hold down the fort as in the interim

The search for a new administrator had kicked off in early 2018 but the original iteration of the committee was not satisfied with the candidate pool, so, the search process was discontinued.

This past fall, the Selectmen voted to hire consultants Community Paradigm Associates to help with the town administrator search.

The committee will be one member less than it was in the spring with members Teresa Daignault and George Haddad stepping down.

Town Clerk Haley Meczywor will join Paul Goyette, teacher and former fire chief; Jeff Grandchamp, attorney and former search committee member; and Leah Thompson, director of development at Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School.

Hoyt said interviews will begin next week after candidates are narrowed down. She said the committee's finalists will go before the selectmen for interviews.
