Foxmyn gets consultant fee
DEERFIELD — The town will pay Wendy Foxmyn $2,026 for two weeks to serve as consultant during the town administrator transition.
She will be paid $33.76 per hour.
From June 16 through June 30, Foxmyn will work alongside Town Administrator Bernie Kubiak, who will retire June 30. The two weeks will serve to help Foxmyn learn the job and help the town transition as it searches for Kubiak’s replacement.
Foxmyn will take over the reins temporarily on July 1 and could be in town for up to six months.
Foxmyn brings with her 30 years of experience as town administrator in several western Massachusetts towns. She is often tapped as interim town administrator.
The Leeds woman will leave her current post as Pioneer Valley Planning Commission manager for Deerfield.
