The Candlewood Lake Authority has completed a survey in its search for a new executive director and plans to develop a job description for the position by its next meeting.
The authority’s Human Resources Committee has been leading the search for a replacement for former Executive Director Larry Marsicano, who stepped down June 30.
The committee told the rest of the Board of Delegates Wednesday that they reviewed a summary of a seven-question survey aimed at finding a new executive director. The survey, which committee members said had a 44 percent return rate, measured what the authority should focus on and what expertise the executive director should have.
Committee members said the ranked responses for what the authority should focus on in the next three to five years were watershed and water quality, collaboration with towns and FirstLight, public education, public safety and equipment and facilities. Respondents said lake management, knowledge of invasives, collaboration with towns and FirstLight, familiarity with the lake and local government were the areas of expertise most important for an executive director.
