MERIDEN — The city is restarting its search for a new human resources director after a candidate recently declined an offer for the position.
City Manager Tim Coon said the applicant declined the offer late last week “due to very recent family issues.”
The position opened in October when Marci Nogueira resigned less than two years into the job.
The city will accept a second round of applications until Dec. 28, Coon said. Candidates will be interviewed by a search committee the following week.
The position has a salary range of $100,000 to $110,000, the job posting said.
Coon said he hopes to hire an HR director by the end of January. In the interim, Coon has assumed the responsibilities of the position, per City Charter.
The human resources director reports directly to the city manager and is responsible for providing advice, support, and counsel to city management and staff on human resources issues, according to the job posting. The director also interprets and administers policies and agreements, and manages assigned personnel.
