November 2019 – From the Mayor

Town Manager Sanford Daily announced his plans to retire at the end of the year at our November 18, 2019 Council Meeting.

Mr. Daily joined the Town in April 2008, when former Mayor, Pete Fosselman, advocated for a professional manager to oversee the day-to-day operations of the Town. Previously retired from the City of Gaithersburg after 27 years, Mr. Daily was persuaded to come and work for the Town.

I have had the privilege of working with Mr. Daily since 2012, when I was first elected to the Town Council. With his many years of municipal management experience, Mr. Daily has served our Town exceptionally well and with the highest level of professionalism. Our elected officials, Residents, and the Town staff will miss his steady hand and institutional knowledge,

Mr. Daily’s last day as Town Manager will be December 31st, however, at the request of the Council, he will remain on staff as a consultant through March 2020. Assistant Town Manager Matthew Hoffman will become acting Town Manager beginning January 1, 2020.

The Board of Appels issued a denial for oral arguments and conditional use (self-storage) for the property located at 10619 Connecticut Avenue on October 29, 2019. The applicant, 1784 Capitol Holdings, has 30 days to appeal the decision to the Circuit Court of Maryland.

On behalf of the Town we wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
