“Whitney Brady did an outstanding job for this community,” said Councilman Gerald “Duke” McCoy. “I feel very disheartened that she's leaving. I don't know that we're going to get someone as effective as she has been and I’m very truly sorry to see her leave.”
McCoy and Tony Cafarelli both voted against the resignation, while council members Stephanie Drewnowski, Tina Iorfido-Miller, Janet Caldarelli and Michael Mikulich voted to approve it. Councilman Joe Pucci was absent.
"Thank you for all that you've done up until this time, and we wish you well," Mikulich told Brady after the vote.
Brady was hired for the job after previous borough manager Eric Kaunert resigned in March 2013 following a three-year tenure.
Council also voted Tuesday to advertise for another borough manager.
In other business, council members officially approved the resignation of Cindy Orlowski as code enforcement officer and ratified the approval to advertise for a new code enforcement officer.
