WESTBOROUGH – Kristi Williams will continue to be the Westborough town manager for the next three years.

During its meeting on Dec. 20, the Select Board approved a new contract for Williams, whose current contract ends on June 30, 2024.

The new contract will begin on July 1, 2024, and will run until June 30, 2027.

Williams’ base salary for the first year will be $215,000, and for the second and third years, she will receive the same percentage increases as non-union employees.

The town will also deposit $20,000 per year into Williams’ deferred compensation account; she will also receive a $5,000 stipend to maintain her credentials as an ICMA credential manager.

Williams will be entitled to five weeks’ vacation per year; one week of unused vacation may be carried over into the following year. She will also receive sick leave, personal days, etc.
As with previous contacts, Williams will have her performance evaluated each year by the Select Board.

“It’s been a really wonderful career,” said Williams.

She pointed out that her daughter, who was 2 years old at the time Williams began as town manager, will be graduating from high school when the just-approved contract ends in 2027.

Williams’ new contract will be available for viewing on the Human Resources page of the town’s website.
