An Update on the Town Manager Process

Post Date:07/15/2020 4:57 PM

Between July 1-10, 2020 an online survey was available to ask our community about the top qualities that they would value in a Town Manager. This was also given to Town employees for their feedback. A community virtual workshop also took place on July 8, 2020 as an additional platform to gain community input. We appreciate the time and effort that everyone took to participate and share their views. The information gained is being consolidated and shared with the Town Council as they move through the process.
