Help Inform the Selection Process for the Next Essex and Essex Junction Manager

With Municipal Manager Patrick Scheidel retiring, the Essex Selectboard and Village of Essex Junction Board of Trustees have hired Municipal Resources Inc. to help with a recruitment / selection process for a new manager. The Boards are interested in securing input from residents to help clarify community desires for and expectations of the next person who will serve as the Unified Manager. Municipal Resources has scheduled several community input sessions for later this month.

Each input session will be limited to 20 participants so interested residents are encouraged to go on-line and reserve a spot.

1.       Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2:30PM-4:00PM at the Town Offices at 81 Main St.

2.       Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6PM-7:30PM at the Town Offices at 81 Main St.

3.       Tuesday, Oct. 24, 7:30PM-9PM at the Town Offices at 81 Main St.

The Boards would also like to invite all community residents to contribute to the process by taking a brief, online survey assessing community values and concerns regarding the Unified Manager's role. 

The survey can be taken online at:

The deadline for completion of the survey is October 31, 2017. 

The Selectboard and Trustees look forward to your input, and thank you in advance for your participation.
