Port of Kingston plans to select executive director Tuesday

It appears that the Kingston Port Commission intends to make an offer of employment Tuesday Oct. 30 to one of the three candidates announced on Thursday.

An agenda attached to a special meeting announcement sent out by the Port of Kingston, includes an offer of employment for a prospective executive director. Sam Gibboney, Greg Englin and Josh Peters were announced as the final three candidates for the position on Thursday during a community meet-and-greet event.

Port Commissioner Laura Gronnvoll said the commission has come to a consensus on who will be offered employment and commissioners were hoping to have letters sent out informing the candidates of their decision by Friday.

Gronnvoll said at the time of his departure, former executive director, Jim Pivarnik, made around $115,000 annually. When asked whether the commission had discussed salary for the new executive director, she declined to answer, stating she would not discuss anything from the commission’s executive sessions. Gronnvoll did however say that the commission was up for negotiating a salary with the selected candidate.

“We’re still up in the air, it’s all negotiable,” Gronnvoll said.
