ORRINGTON, Maine — Selectmen have chosen someone they know well to be the new town manager: former Selectman Paul White.
Interim Town Manager Susan L. Carson said town leaders chose White for the post at a special meeting last week.
“They decided to offer him the job at their special meeting on [Dec. 29],” said Carson, who was sworn in as interim town manager at the same meeting.
White has accepted the offer, she said.
It is expected White will be paid $45,000 to $55,000 and is scheduled to begin Monday.
He served on the Board of Selectmen from 2000 to 2005, with three years as chairman. He resigned in December 2005, while serving as interim town manager.
White will succeed Carl Young, who accepted an offer from Tremont to be that community’s tax assessor and code enforcement officer.
Selectmen reviewed 17 town manager applications, and “had narrowed it down to three applicants, and interviewed those three on the 29th,” Carson said.
