The Town of Brewster is seeking one (or two) residents to serve on a new hiring committee. Long-time Town Administrator Charles Sumner announced in the fall that he will be retiring in October 2015.
Brewster selectmen are charged with finding a suitable replacement for the man they called " sensible, level-headed and fiscally-savvy" in a recent release. Selectmen will soon be assembling a search and selection committee made up of 5 to 7 members. Of those members, one or two will be citizen-members.
The process of finding, interviewing and selecting a new town administrator is expected to take 6 to 8 months. During that time, the committee members will have a "fairly intensive" meeting schedule.
Brewster residents interested in applying for the committee should send a cover letter and resume to Selectman Patricia Hughes at the Brewster Town Hall, 2198 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631 by 4 p.m. on Friday, January 23.
Sumner has been the town administrator in Brewster since 1986.
