Rehoboth set to hire new city managerProvincetown, Mass. Manager Sharon Lynn to move to new cape
Rehoboth city officials remain mum on the topic, but according to news reports in Massachusetts, Provincetown, Mass. Town Manager Sharon Lynn has accepted the job of Rehoboth Beach city manager.
The Cape Cod Times reported Lynn is a former police officer and detective who was manager of West Goshen Township, Pa., in eastern Pennsylvania near the New Jersey border, from 1996 until she accepted the town manager position in Provincetown in 2007.
In a story about Lynn's resignation, still unofficial in Provincetown, the Times reported one official said of Lynn, “When she came, this place was pretty shabby, but she's leaving it in sparkling condition. She does all the right things.”
The official, Provincetown Vice Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Elaine Anderson, described Lynn's work in Provincetown as “outstanding. As a matter of fact, I say extraordinary,” the newspaper reported.
Mayor Sam Cooper declined comment on the new town manager because no official offer has yet been extended or accepted. Cooper said officials are working on a contract, which the commissioners must vote on before a formal offer can be made.
“Until the commissioners have made a formal offer, there is no offer,” Cooper said.
