Dewey Beach has a town manager on board who has law enforcement experience but also local connections.
Bill Zolper emerged from the field of candidates and was hired at a special meeting Wednesday, according to Commissioner Paul Bauer. Bauer told WGMD News that the position drew extensive interest and a wide field of candidates was narrowed down to a few finalists.
The previous town manager Scott Koenig left for a private sector job last summer.
Zolper’s career included positions with the FBI in several capacities and with Delaware State Police.
