During Monday night's meeting, The Franklin Board of Aldermen received an update from Town Manager Sam Greenwood regarding the transition process that will ultimately result in Warren Cabe assuming the role as Franklin's manager.
According to a letter given by Greenwood before the start of the meeting, Greenwood's last day on the job will be March 29. “Warren Cabe and I have reached the conclusion that Warren will be ready to assume the duties of Town Manager effective April 1, 2013. Accordingly, I am giving notice under my contract that effectively my last day with the Town will be March 29, 2013.”
Greenwood came out of retirement in 2008 to lead the town as manager, and has since guided the town through a transition phase that found Franklin's government directed as a managerial government. After his contract expired on March 1, 2010 and an agreement was made to continue working with Greenwood until Feb. 28, 2012, he began searching for a replacement, and at the request of the board, searched from within current employees in the town to select his successor.
