LYNNFIELD — The Lynnfield Board of Selectmen has announced it has scheduled a community forum for Wednesday, Nov. 29 to give citizens the opportunity to share their thoughts on the qualifications and characteristics they would like the town’s next town administrator to possess.

The forum will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Al Merritt Media and Cultural Center, 600 Market Street.

“We want to hear Lynnfield residents’ recommendations regarding the qualifications and experience they would like to see in the candidates for our next Town Administrator,” said Selectmen Chairman Chris Barrett. “It is important to the board that Lynnfield’s citizens are an integral part of the town administrator selection process.”

The town has hired the consulting firm Community Paradigm Associates, LLC, to assist in the search process. Representatives from the firm, including Principal Bernard Lynch, will attend the community forum along with representatives of the Board of Selectmen.

Current Town Administrator James Boudreau recently submitted his resignation after being selected as the town of Scituate’s next town administrator. He will be leaving his position in Lynnfield at the end of 2017 following a three-year tenure.
