Verona’s town manager resigned in July and now the town has posted the search for a new town manager.
The notice describes the township manager position as the “CEO of the Township” and notes that while the manager will run the day-to-day operations of the town, he or she will report to the Town Council.
The town is looking for someone with a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of three years of high-level management experience. The search notes that municipal government experience is preferred and that postgraduate education and past experience will be considered as well.
The advertised salary range for the position is $120,000 to $160,000, which would represent a savings for Verona: When Joe Martin retired on July 14, he was being paid more than $195,000. Mitchell Stern, a captain in the Verona Police Department who is also the current president of the Certified Public Manager’s Society of New Jersey, has been serving as interim manager without pay since Martin’s departure.
The full notice for the job is here. But if you, or someone you know, is applying for it, you’ve got to do so by August 31.
