[ARCHIVED] Public Comment Sought On Town Manager Appointment

The Select Board is giving serious consideration to appointing Assistant Town Manager/Finance Director John Musante to the position of Town Manager, effective on Larry Shaffer’s September 30, 2010 retirement date. This would be a “permanent” appointment, rather than an “interim” appointment, and there would be no such search process.


The Select Board invites public feedback on this issue. A working document listing some pros and cons of appointing Mr. Musante without conducting a search is available (see link below).

We encourage you to contribute additional thoughts on such pros and cons, so that we can be as thorough as possible in weighing those against each other. Please send your thoughts to selectboard@amherstma.gov before September 13, 2010.

Additionally, public comment on the topic is invited at the September 13th Select Board meeting, to be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Town Room at Town Hall.
