GRAFTON, Mass. – Town Administrator Timothy McInerney received a one-year extension of his contract Tuesday, with selectmen stressing that he now needs to move to town.
McInerney, who was appointed interim administrator in fall 2008 and named town administrator in April 2009, has commuted from Seekonk for his entire term. He began looking for a home in Grafton last spring when he received a three-year contract.
"We're doing this extension with the understanding that he wants to be in town by the end of this year," Selectman David Ross said.
In exchange for the early extension, McInerney will not receive a raise in the next year, Ross said. McInerney currently makes $120,000 annually.
