“Berlin has been extremely well-served these past four years by a very experienced and capable person who has done an outstanding job in managing the town during a time of both challenge and change,” Mayor Williams added. “Tony has played a key role in the significant progress that has been made in transforming our town’s policies, plans and operations to meet the changing needs of our community, not just for today, but for the next generation and beyond.”
“The council members and I express our thanks and gratitude for the leadership Tony has provided in helping Berlin build a foundation for success that those who follow us can build on throughout the 21st Century,” the Mayor said.
Carson will continue to serve as Berlin’s Town Administrator through the remainder of the current fiscal year which ends June 30 and is committed to doing everything possible to ensure a smooth transition in the administration of the town’s municipal government, the mayor said.
