SYKESVILLE, Md. (AP) — Sykesville has a new town manager.
Dawn Ashbacher’s first day on the job will be Nov. 13. She will succeed Matt Candland, who left in July after more than 17 years with the town.
Ashbacher previously worked as assistant to the city manager in Winchester, Va., and assistant director of the planning commission and a budget analyst for Fairfax County, Va.
The Carroll County Times reports that Police Chief John Williams has been acting as interim town manager and police chief since Candland’s departure.
