HARVARD — The town should know by Friday if it will be in the market for a new town administrator.
Incumbent Paul Cohen is one of five finalists to become the next city manager in Lowell. The City Council there has scheduled a special meeting for June 30, at 10 a.m., to make its decision, according to a report in the Lowell Sun.
The City Council wrapped up interviews of the candidates on June 20 and is reportedly seeking to replace outgoing manager John Cox expeditiously. Cox is scheduled to vacate the position by the end of July.
Speaking on Wednesday morning, Cohen thought his interview went well, though he said the decision rests with the City Council.
“They have a group of qualified candidates,” he said. “It remains to be seen who they think is the best fit for the position.”
Cohen is a Lowell native and called the city manager position a unique opportunity, saying he is by no means conducting a general job search or seeking to leave Harvard. — Nathan Lamb
