CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Carolina Beach leaders decided to send an offer of contract to Michael B. Cramer to become the new town manager of Carolina Beach.
Cramer has a Masters degree in public affairs from UNC Greensboro. He spent about 15 years working in finances, human resources, and public works for the city of Greensboro.
Currently, he works as a town manager for Menominee, a small town in Michigan, but wants to come back to North Carolina.
The offer will be sent to Cramer tonight and town leaders expect to have the offer accepted.
Council Member, Jody Smith says the council is excited to move forward and continue working on projects already in progress.
"It has been a long and tedious process so it's nice to be able to have a decision and move forward. We're excited about having Mr. Cramer come here. He's a great family guy. He's excited about being involved in the community so we're excited about welcoming him to Carolina Beach."
Council will still have to come back for a final vote on the contract, but town leaders hope for Cramer to start "as soon as possible."
