MONTEREY—While the need for a town administrator is still up for debate within the town’s select board, it hasn’t stopped talks from beginning with Robert Markel, a possible candidate to step into the role on an interim basis.

Markel met with the select board on Wednesday morning and agreed to send the board an updated resume that includes his previous seven stints as an interim town manager.

After retiring as a full-time town manager in Ipswich, Markel has since been in interim roles in Templeton, Northfield, Southampton, Becket, Buckland and Richmond.

He was most recently a candidate in Stockbridge for the same position.

“From what I’ve gathered from the selectmen, there are some needs that they mentioned like supervision and a more vigorous effort at getting grants,” Markel told the Record. “Grants now are funding a lot of things that communities do, over and above the day-to-day operations.”

Markel said a town the size of Monterey (under 1,000 population in 2010), would probably not require a full-time position at the administrator role.
