Just two weeks after agreeing to leave his job a year early and still get paid, former Foxborough town manager Kevin Paicos has been named one of two finalists for a part-time, temporary town administrator job in Northfield, a small community in the Berkshires.
A decision is expected to be made on Sept. 3, according to selectmen there.
Paicos confirmed his candidacy in a phone interview on Wednesday. He said the severance agreement that sends him on his way from Foxborough with $211,000 in pay and benefits – and requires him to be on call to finish municipal tasks – does not consider his taking another job “double-dipping” because it specifically allows him to seek other employment.
“And I’m doing that,” he said.
Foxborough officials have not discussed whether Paicos left voluntarily or was shown the door.
