The town of Taos is advertising its Facilities Services Director position following Ron Yachinich’s announcement that he will be resigning effective Oct. 10.

Yachinich’s most recent stint with the town began in 2007, when he was hired to oversee the Convention Center “after a brief separation,” according to a town release. He became head of the Facilities Services Department in 2011 after a reorganization of town departments.

“I wish Ron success in the future and thank him for his years of service to the town,” Mayor Darren Córdova is quoted as saying in the release.

The town is advertising the opening, with town Manager Oscar Rodríguez saying he is seeking a “capable and experienced professional who will also lead the town’s efforts to improve services in the Plaza and the surrounding historic district, as well as handle the day-to-day oversight of a department of 20 employees who are responsible for maintaining the town’s buildings, facilities and parks,” the release states.

According to information from the town, Yachinich did not say whether he has accepted another job. Yachinich declined to comment for this story.

According to the town’s job posting, the position pays $51,771-54,933 and is supervised by the town manager and assistant town manager. The town is seeking someone with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, public administration or a related field, and has a minimum of five years’ experience in facilities management, upkeep and beautification of parks, historic districts and the convention/hospitality industry, as well as a minimum of five years experience at a managerial level.
