Search continues for new Pelham town administrator
While town officials had recently said they’d expected to make a selection in April, during Tuesday night’s Selectmen meeting Chairman Edmund Gleason said the board “remained in the review process” of candidate interviews.
Selectmen vowed to have a permanent hire in place by June 1.
Few additional details were revealed this week; officials did not identify any of the potential candidates.
Of those, eight candidates were selected for interviews, although two of them withdrew from the process.
The deadline for applications was March 18.
Gaydos, who had worked as the town’s administrator since 2002 and previously served as town administrator in Ashland and Ossipee, did not give a reason for his resignation and selectmen didn’t readily discuss their reasons for placing him on administrative leave.
Police Chief Joseph Roark has been serving as acting town administrator since Gaydos’ departure.
A salary for the new town administrator wasn’t listed on the advertisement for the position, but town documents indicate Gaydos’ annual salary was $103,000 at the time he was placed on leave.
