GREAT BARRINGTON — And then there were three.

A search committee tasked with finding the new town manager has narrowed the candidate pool down to three finalists.

To assist the committee in the screening process, the town hired Plymouth-based consulting firm Community Paradigm Associates LLC for $15,000. The committee received a total of 22 applications by the Feb. 20 deadline, said Bernard Lynch, principal at the firm,during Monday’s selectboard meeting.

From the 22, the search committee selected six candidates to be interviewed.

During that process, one candidate withdrew and the committee chose three finalists for the board’s review.

“We tried to scatter the profile as far and wide as we could,” he said, as he detailed the search process to the board. “We’ve brought forward three high-quality options. Their references were very positive. Each had different strengths and qualities. What it comes down to is: who is the right fit?”

Michael Wise, recording secretary of the search committee, presented the finalists to the board, which included: Jonathan Edwards of Whately, Mark A. Pruhenski of Housatonic and Kenneth E. Walto of Dalton
