The Adams Selectmen are in a position to finally hire a permanent Department of Public Works director next week after interviewing three finalists.
iBerkshires.com  reports the board Tuesday interviewed finalist candidates Paul Markland of North Adams, Robert Tober of the Boston area, and Michael Salem of Virginia. The Selectmen plan to convene Tuesday, Dec. 3, to make their decision.
"All three are qualified and motivated to become the town's next DPW Director," Town Administrator Jay Green said Wednesday in an email exchange. "It will be a difficult decision for the Board."
The town has been without a permanent director since Joe Bettis resigned in 2015.
The board on Tuesday held public interviews of Tober, Salem and Markland, in that order.
