GREAT BARRINGTON — Stepping into a new role in any field can be a challenge.

But the first step in getting a handle of a position is identifying the primary concerns.

For Mark Pruhenski, getting up to speed meant identifying priorities.

Pruhenski assumed the role of Great Barrington town manager June 3 from the departing Jennifer Tabakin. He was appointed to the role in March after an extensive search performed by Plymouth-based consulting firm Community Paradigm Associates LLC. Pruhenski’s three-year contract includes a salary of $120,000 per year.

At a June 25 selectboard meeting designated for goal-setting, Pruhenski worked with board members to prioritize items on a list of 63 different town-related matters. The list was assembled by selectboard members and ranged from the status of buildings projects like 100 Bridge St. to addressing personnel policies and procedures.
