Waldoboro seeks code officer
Waldoboro — The Town of Waldoboro has begun a search for a new Development Director and Code Enforcement Officer following the resignation of Willa Antczak May 16.
"It came as quite a surprise to me," said Town Manager Linda-Jean Briggs May 19.
According to Briggs, Antczak left her Waldoboro position to take a job with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust.
Antczak took over for former director Bill Najpauer last fall.
"It was a difficult decision for her as she was just beginning to feel comfortable here," said Briggs. "We will miss her and wish her well."
The position is advertised on the town website as "responsible for the administrative and technical work in planning, directing and managing a program of community and economic development and code enforcement".
Applicants should possess a Bachelor's Degree in planning, community development, business or public administration or a related field and possess — or be able to obtain — certification as a CEO in Land Use and Shoreland Zoning.
Briggs encourages qualified applicants to submit a resume with cover letter to her office no later than Friday, May 23.
"I hope to fill the position soon as there seems to be momentum building and I would hate to lose it," said Briggs.
