12 apply for Methuen solicitor job

(Continued)

Four councilors are on the search committee: Fountain, Jennifer Kannan, Tom Ciulla and Lisa Ferry. Councilor Jamie Atkinson was recently dropped from the committee because a meeting of five city councilors is considered a quorum.

Also on the committee are local lawyers Arthur Broadhurst and Bryan Chase. Broadhurst is a former state representative and current member of the Methuen Housing Authority board and Nevins Memorial Library board of trustees. Chase has a law office in Haverhill.

McQuillan has worked as city solicitor since 2005 and makes $113,144 per year. He will stay on board until a successor or interim is named. If the council opts to name an interim solicitor, Fountain said it will not be one of the applicants for the permanent job.
