GRAFTON, Mass. — The position of library director should be filled by January and the interim director of the senior center might be asked to take the job permanently, Grafton's town administrator said in an interview with The Daily Voice.
"We've interviewed two candidates," Timothy McInerney said of the library position. He expects to make a decision soon, followed by an announcement Nov. 26. He will ask the Board of Selectmen to ratify the recommendation at its Dec. 4 meeting.
"My goal is to have that person start on Jan. 7," McInerney said.
In August, the selectmen approved the appointment of Heidi Fowler as interim library director after Hildig Hedberg stepped down due to personal reasons.
The Senior Center Director position, however, will remain unfilled for a while. In September, then-director Michelle Drumm was dismissed for undisclosed reasons. Barbara Connelly, the center's office manager, has been interim director since.
McInerney hinted that Connelly might be asked to become the permanent replacement.
"It's working very well," he said. "I think she would love to have the job, I'd love to give it to her, but I have to think through the services we provide. For now, I'm leaving it as status quo."
There is no time frame on when the next steps would be taken, McInerney said.
