HISID still searching for new district manager
HOLIDAY ISLAND -- The Holiday Island Board of Commissioners will hold a regular meeting on Monday, June 17, at 9 a.m. at the district office. The meeting will include an executive session on the search for a district manager, said Chairman Ken Ames.
"We have interviewed two candidates," Ames said Wednesday. "We went through the process and screened out candidates and actually had three to talk to."
He said the board had received more than 30 applications.
They set up interview dates for three candidates, but one called and cancelled. The other two were interviewed, but "both of them declined offers of employment."
He said the board has received an additional five resumés, will sift through the stack again in executive session on Monday and plan to set up more interviews.
In the meantime, the district has been operating since May 29 without an interim manager.
"The department heads are taking care of their own areas," Ames said. "If they need questions answered, they can call me, but if there are any major decisions to be made or decisions about money, I will call a special board meeting. It's working out very well."
Also on the agenda for Monday's meeting, the board will consider an agreement with McGoodwin, Williams & Yates on preliminary design and loan application plans for construction of a building to house a belt press for drying sludge at the wastewater treatment plant.

The meeting will take place at 110 Woodsdale Drive. The public is welcome.
