The Town Council seeks an experienced professional who enjoys public service and embraces the high level of citizen participation inherent in this extraordinary “small town” community. The new Town Manager will be a dedicated, hands-on public servant who supports and implements the policies of the Town Council. The ideal candidate will have a strong service orientation combined with a desire to provide leadership to an organization dedicated to providing residents with the highest level of assistance. Experience dealing with a small staff on a wide array of finance, human resource, planning, community development, and public works issues will be a plus. The new Town Manager will be an effective, honest, and efficient communicator skilled at facilitating open discussions, supporting debate on important issues, and addressing, through the Town Council, the best common interests of the community. She/he will also have a successful track record of increasing organizational efficiencies, balanced with the ability to recommend creative funding and revenue options. A strong and innovative administrative background is essential as there is a continual need to assess and evaluate the use of periodic contractual and outsourced staffing arrangements for potential cost savings or other alternatives.
