Town Council Approves Hiring of Interim Manager
October 30, 2019
FRONT ROYAL – The Town Council of Front Royal approved of the hiring of Matt Tederick as the Interim Town Manager during its Monday meeting.
Following a closed session during the meeting, the Town Council reconvened to vote on an agreement for the services of an Interim Town Manager. The agreement was voted on 5-1, with Councilman Eugene Tewalt being the only dissenting voice. The agreement was approved and will go into effect on Nov. 8 following the resignation of current Town Manager Joe Waltz.
Tederick will work for the town on a contractual basis rather than as a town employee. That contract can be terminated before its end date on July 1, 2020 if a permanent Town Manager can be found prior to the natural end of the contract.
Waltz was in attendance for the beginning of the meeting. He was awarded with a plaque from the Council and recognized for his services as Town Manager of Front Royal. Waltz resigned from his position earlier this month. He has been the Town Manager since June of 2017, and prior to that he served as an employee of the Town for 12 years.
Tederick was named the Interim Mayor of Front Royal in May of this year. He has also served on the Warren County Board of Supervisors. The position of Mayor will be voted on during the Nov. 5 special election.
