Resumes still being sought for Ferry Service Director position

MARTINS FERRY — Mayor Robert Krajnyak is serving as interim service director for the city of Martins Ferry since Chris Cleary left the position Friday.

Krajnyak said he has received some resumes from people interested in the position, which pays about $39,000 per year, but he is hoping to get more.

He plans to accept resumes until July 23. Potential candidates can drop their resumes off at the mayor’s office, located on the first floor of the city building on Fifth Street. They also can mail them to office at 35 S. Fifth St., Martins Ferry, OH 43935.

Krajnyak said the position is appointed by him and there is no city residency requirement.

“We’ve had a few interesting resumes sent in. … I would like to try and get someone in the first week of August before I go back to school,” Krajnyak said, referring to his full-time job as a teacher for the Bridgeport Exempted Village School District.

“I want to take my time in finding the right person. I don’t want to hurry up and rush into it and pick a person who might not be the best qualified for the position,” he said.

According to information provided by Krajnyak, some of the job duties of the position include overseeing department budgets and operations; managing infrastructure projects and ensuring quality services to residents; general supervision, custody, care and maintenance of city-owned buildings and properties; familiarity with the streets, parks and stormwater maintenance; a bachelor’s degree or minimum of two to four years experience; and experience coordinating infrastructure projects.
