In Lebanon, New Hampshire, the city will be under new management in the form of a new city manager, after the previous official was suspended after a poor performance review. The Lebanon City Council announced this week that Paula Maville is taking office today as the city’s interim city manager, replacing Dennis Luttrell, who was hired on September 1st of last year.
In late March, he was suspended with pay and benefits after a performance review, although city officials have not expressly stated what the reasons for moving to fire him were.
Maville is no stranger to the Lebanon city government, or even the position for that matter, as she has been an employee of the city for 30 years as the Deputy City Manager for three of those years and previously served as Interim City Manager following the retirement of Greg Lewis.
In a press release, city officials have expressed that Maville has the knowledge and experience to successfully move along the process of a constructing a fiscally responsible budget.
At this time, the City Council is still considering the time frame and search for a permanent city manager.
