Mayor hopes to fill super's shoes by 2016


The town of Coulee Dam hopes to have the position of superintendent of public works filled by the first of the year, Mayor Greg Wilder informed the council last Wednesday night.

Wilder said the town continues to get applicants for the position, both from western Washington and eastern Washington.

He said that the town will review applicants Oct. 6, and begin the process of selecting a new superintendent.

The former superintendent, Barry Peacock, retired at the end of August after serving 29 years with the town.

Wilder was asked if any of the applicants had electrical experience. Peacock had been a lineman and was able to solve electrical service problems for the town, which owns an electric utility.

The mayor said “no,” but said he was considering asking Peacock if he could be available on some kind of consulting contract to help the town out when it had service problems.

Wilder said he hoped to narrow applicants to the top three and work from there.
