Tolland’s finance director will be taking over as town manager on a fill-in basis.

TOLLAND, CT — Tolland’s treasurer and finance director will be filing in as the temporary town manager beginning Friday.

The appointment of Lisa Hancock was made official by the Tolland Town Council this week. She becomes the first woman to hold the position in Tolland.

The need for an interim arose when Michael Rosen resigned from his position in early July to take what he termed “a career opportunity” as the municipal manager in Norwood, MA.

Rosen’s last day was Thursday.

Tolland Town Council Chairwoman Tammy Nuccio and Tolland Director of Administrative Services Mike Wilkinson said at a special council meeting that going with Hancock was “the best move for the town,” because it “provides continuity.”

“Ms. Hancock understands the town better than any other applicant that would come forward.,” said Nuccio, who added, “I am looking forward to having Ms. Hancock’s experience at the Town Manager level.”

The council then decided to “backfill” the position to provide “full coverage” for the finance department. On Friday, the position was officially advertised.

According to the job posting, the salary and hours are negotiable.

With a population of 14,618, the municipal side of Tolland’s budget totals $12.6 million.

A search for a permanent replacement for Rosen is under way.
