Wanted: Climate Coordinator

Beacon looking for part-time employee

The City of Beacon is looking for a part-time employee to manage its Climate Smart Communities program. According to a job listing posted at cityofbeacon.org, the position will require 30 hours per month coordinating volunteers and looking for energy savings within municipal operations.

County officials told the City Council earlier this year that Beacon would benefit from hiring a person to manage the efforts required to be certified by the state as a Climate Smart Community, which would qualify the city for a number of grants. The application deadline is May 3.
