SELECTMEN NEWS Board To Interview 2 Finalists For Finance DirectorTown Accountant On

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — At Monday night’s Board of Selectmen Meeting, Town Manager Jeff Hull provided an update on the town’s search for its next Finance Director/Town Accountant.The search has faced some challenges as one of the two original finalists withdrew her name. The screening committee then decided to re-advertise the position to seek additional applicants.“It’s a real struggle in Massachusetts to get individuals who are qualified in municipal finance positions,” began Hull. “The fact that we had only 11 applicants during the first go around and 9 applicants the second time, many having no experience, just goes to show you the challenge we face in replacing some of these key positions.”The screening committee — which consist of the soon-to-be-retiring Town Account Mike Morris, Town Manager Jeff Hull, Assistant Town Manager Kerry Colburn-Dion, and Selectman Jonathan Eaton — identified two finalists.The two finalists are Jennifer Finnegan — who currently serves as the Town Treasurer/Collector for the Town of Tyngsboro — and Bryan Perry — who currently serves as the City Auditor for Lowell.Selectmen will interview both candidates on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, beginning at 6:15pm, in Town Hall’s Room 9. The interviews are open to the public. The interviews will be telecast live by Wilmington Community Television on Channel 9 on Comcast and Channel 37 on Verizon.  The meeting will also be streamed on WCTV’s website HERE.Selectmen will then hold a special meeting on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7pm at Town Hall to make the appointment.“Mike Morris’s last day is July 12. He has agreed to provide some assistsance on a limited basis thereafter,” said Hull. “Clearly, we want to have someone on board as soon as possible. Being able to speak with him and have his help during the transition is going to be key. The applicant is likely going to have to give 3-4 weeks notice to their employer.”“It’s imperative that we move as quickly as we can add,” added Selectman Jonathan Eaton. “The two finalists we have are both very capable of the position.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
