Help Wanted


The Town of Fair Haven, Vermont (pop. 2,633), seeks an experienced leader to serve as its next Town Manager. Fair Haven is a small, rural town with many urban amenities on the western border of Rutland County in west-central Vermont. It maintains strong civic pride, especially due to its smaller population, its historically recognized slate mining/manufacturing industry, its veterans, and its Town green (called “The Park”).

The Manager reports to a five-member selectboard and is responsible for day-to-day Town operations, including supervision of all departments (Police, Fire, Water, Wastewater, Highways, Solid Waste, Recreation, and Accounting). The Town currently has 32 full- and part-time employees and an operating budget of $2.93 million.

A Bachelor’s degree in public administration, business management, or related field (Master’s degree preferred) along with five years of management experience are required. A full job description is posted at under About/Job Openings.

Salary commensurate with experience, and an excellent benefits package is offered.

To apply, please email a confidential cover letter, resume, and three professional references to, or send to:
