BELGRADE — Carrie Castonguay, the administrative assistant to the Livermore Board of Selectpersons, will start her new duties as town manager on March 21, Belgrade selectperson Chairman Ernie Rice said Monday.

The Belgrade Board of Selectmen unanimously chose Castonguay of Jay from among six candidates who were interviewed, he said. The town received 19 applications.

Castonguay will replace Town Manager Greg Gill, who is retiring at the end of March.

She was hired at an annual salary of $48,500, Rice said. She will be on a six-month probationary period because she is a new employee.

Castonguay has the qualities the town was looking for and she will blend in with the town, Rice said. She was also looking for a long-term commitment, Rice said.

“She interviewed very well,” he said. “She had all the right answers.”

Castonguay will be introduced to the townspeople during the annual town meeting Saturday, March 19.

Castonguay has about 17 years of administration experience. She has been with the town of Livermore since since August 2014. Prior to that, she was the director of adult education in Regional School Unit 61 in the Bridgton area. Before her position in Bridgton, she was director of adult education in Regional School Unit 36 in the Livermore and Livermore Falls area.
