§ 101-18. Removal of the Town Manager
The Manager may be removed by a majority vote of the full Board of Selectmen. At least 30 days before the proposed removal of the Manager, the Board shall adopt a resolution in executive session, stating its intention to remove him or her and the reasons for removal, a copy of which shall be delivered forthwith to the Manager. Upon or after passage of such resolution, the Board may suspend the Manager from duty, but his or her pay shall continue until removal. If the resolution is not withdrawn, the resolution shall automatically take effect. In case of such a suspension, the Board may appoint an acting manager to serve at the discretion of the Board. By ordinance or by contract with any Manager, the selectmen may provide for the Manager to have additional rights in removal proceedings, including the right to a hearing, provided such rights are otherwise consistent with the provisions of this section. The action of the Board in removing the Manager shall be final.
