CORINTH, Maine — Two months after Corinth’s longtime town manager retired, the town has hired a new one.
Travis D. Gould, who was chosen from a pool of 26 applicants, will assume his new duties in early 2011, selectmen announced Friday. He succeeds Donald Strout, who retired on Oct. 15 after serving as town manager for 31 years.
“Travis has done a great job serving the town of Corinth, previously as the town’s tax assessor’s agent and assistant town manager,” Corinth selectmen said Friday in a news release.
“We are confident that he will serve our community well as town manager and [in his] continued role as assessor’s agent,” they said.
In Corinth, the town manager also serves as town clerk, tax collector, town treasurer and general assistance administrator.
In making their announcement, the town’s five selectmen noted that Gould is cross-trained in the town’s operations and has had varied training in tax assessing, municipal procedures and computer systems.
