The town of Waterboro (pop. 9000) is re-opening its search for the full-time position of Town Administrator. The Town Administrator functions administratively as the Town Clerk, Tax Collector, Treasurer and General Assistance Administrator, although experienced deputies perform the majority of this daily work. The Town Administrator is the personnel director and is responsible for hiring, evaluation and direction of the town staff and works closely with Selectmen on such matters. This position works closely with the Budget Committee, deputy Treasurer and Selectmen to prepare the annual budget and review the status of expenses and revenues throughout the year. The town has a seven million dollar municipal budget (not including RSU 57 costs of well over $9 million). The Administrator provides direction and oversight to over 100 employees during peak season. Waterboro has over 63 miles of town roads that are plowed by private contractors, but the town may start taking some of that over in upcoming years. Experience in grant-writing, oversight of investments, economic development and long-range financial planning is desirable.
The ideal candidate will have graduated from a four-year college or university in the fields of public policy or public administration and have considerable municipal work experience as a town or city manager. Candidates with comparable management experience and education are encouraged to apply. Applications are encouraged from those without a formal degree but whose resume includes extensive hands on management experience or municipal work experience. The town provides the employee with holiday and vacation time as well as health and dental insurance and a retirement contribution to MEPERS or a separate 457 plan. Salary negotiable based on experience and training.
