Any questions for manager applicants? Comments?

By Jack Durham

Press Editor

 

The McKinleyville Community Services District Board of Directors may start interviewing applicants for the position of general manager as early as next week.

Although those interviews will take place in closed session, residents can provide board members with suggested questions to ask as well as attributes that they should be looking for in a new manager.

Whoever is selected by the board will replace  Manager Tom Marking, who is scheduled to retire May 1.

Public input can be mailed to the MCSD at 1656 Sutter Road, McKinleyville, CA 95519 or emailed to mcsd@mckinleyvillecsd.com.

Those who would like to remain anonymous can send questions and comments to the McKinleyville Press, which will retype the comments and forward them to board members. 

Comments can be emailed to news@mckinleyvillepress.com or sent to the Press headquarters at 1660 Central Avenue, Ste F.

Comments can also be posted on the McKinleyville Press blog at http://mckinleyvillepress.wordpress.com/
