The Washington County Commissioners could hire a new director for the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission in the next few weeks, four commissioners said Monday.
Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook and Commissioner R. Lee Downey said the EDC board and the commissioners planned to meet jointly to discuss one or two candidates in the next week or two.
"Based on those meetings we'll hopefully make a decision," Snook said.
"That will come to a closure soon," said County Commissioners Vice President John S. Shank.
"It's moving forward," said Commissioner James R. Wade.
The EDC board of directors has had preliminary interviews with candidates.
EDC member Suzanne Hayes said she didn't know how long it would take to hire a director. "The interview process grinds on," she said.
