Red Bank city commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to offer the city manager post to Randy Hemann of Salisbury, N.C.
The packed room in Red Bank City Hall resounded with applause after commissioners made their decision, but it may be several days before the city has a final answer from Hemann, Mayor Monty Millard said.
Hemann has served 15 years as Executive Director of Downtown Salisbury, Inc., a non-profit devoted to extensive revitalization efforts and economic growth in the city of about 32,000.
Millard said he would offer the job to Hemann by phone tonight and give him several days to give an answer.
