KRONENWETTER, WI (WSAU) - The Village of Kronenwetter has narrowed down the list of applicants for their open Public Works Director position. The Village Board spent a lot of time Wednesday night interviewing the three finalists.
Village Administrator Richard Downey says the candidates interviewed with the Public Works staff and also with the board. He says the board is holding off on making a selection until everyone’s information is checked out. "The Board would really like to get a lot of background information on people, so after about an hour of discussion, they directed me to continue the hiring process which means go out and do a lot of reference checking and bring back all of that information to them."
There are three finalists for the job, and Downey says two of them are from other municipalities in central Wisconsin. "The three candidates that were interviewed tonight, and are basically the finalists are Mr. Duane Gow from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, Mark Ptak out of Stevens Point, and Drey Brown, and he is out of Nekoosa."
The Administrator is confident the Board will make a choice soon, but agrees they shouldn’t jump into a decision too quickly.
Downey says the new Public Works Director should be selected in about a month.
