Carver: Milanoski voted new town administrator

Carver has extended an offer of employment to Michael Milanoski as the new Town Administrator.

The three members of the Board of Selectmen who were allowed to participate in the vote: Jack Franey, Dick Ward, and Helen Marrone, voted unanimously for Milanoski after a lot of hard work and careful consideration.

One of Franey’s main considerations in his decision was land-use. “Milanoski’s background is land-use,” he said, “He’s a certified financial planner and he’s done redevelopment authority work…and we have a lot of land-use issues in the town.”

Marrone stressed the importance of Milanoski’s many specific accomplishments during his short period of time in Cohasset. “Michael had assisted in bringing Cohasset’s declining bond rating to an upgrade of AA+,” she said,”He also created comprehensive financial management policies…Cohasset was crumbling when they brought in Michael as the Town Administrator and he accomplished all of this within a year and a half.”

Of the four candidates: Michael Milanoski from Cohasset, Michael McCue from Avon, David Marciello from Rehoboth, and Alan Chiocca from Rockland, Milanoski and McCue were in all three of the voting selectmen’s “top two.” They agreed that if for some reason Milanoski does not accept the position, they would be more than willing to extend the offer to McCue.

Milanoski’s contract as Town Manager of Cohasset ends on December 31st, and Franey said he anticipates having discussions with him about a new contract with Carver in the near future.
