Clarksburg Finalizes Town Administrator Advertisement

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Select Board held a brief meeting on Tuesday morning to give final approval to a bid contract and the language for the town administrator posting. 
The board had determined at its meeting two weeks ago to post for the position left vacant by the resignation of Carl McKinney and to set up a search committee. 
However, the advertisement for the job had been delayed about a week. Tuesday, Chairman Ronald Boucher and Select Board member Jeffrey Levanos gave the OK to some slight modifications suggested by absent member Danielle Luchi. 
They also approved sweetening the job slightly by raising the maximum salary up to $55,000. Levanos asked if extra $5,000 was available and Boucher said he believed there were some places that could be tapped.
