The deadline to apply for Community Board 9’s district manager position is Nov. 7; and as one board member indicated to The Forum, all applications will not be reviewed until after said deadline has passed.
The board, which serves Kew Gardens, Richmond Hill, Woodhaven and Ozone Park, has been searching for candidates since longtime District Manager Mary Ann Carey announced her retirement in August. As of Oct. 1, the position has been vacant.
According to a CB 9 spokesman, the district manager will work under the direction of the board, will monitor and evaluate the delivery of municipal services and will be actively involved in coordinating the delivery of those services. He or she will receive and process complaints from residents. The district manager will also provide reports to the board on meetings he or she attends, and on complaints received from residents. The district manager will also supervise and administer the office and staff of the board.
CB9’s District Manager Search Committee approved a set of preferred skills and requirements. Competitive candidates will have supervisory, administrative and complaint-resolution experience. Knowledge of New York City government and zoning codes is helpful. Candidates must possess excellent writing, oral communication and public speaking skills, and must be computer literate. It is a full-time position requiring both daytime and evening hours.
To apply, candidates must mail their resume, with registered return receipt, to Community Board 9 – Application Submission 120-55 Queens Blvd., Suite 310-A Kew Gardens, NY 11424. No other form of application submission will be accepted.
