Sharon Town Administrator Juliana Kazanovicz filed her resignation at a town meeting this Tuesday, Sept. 6.

Kazanovicz cited personal and family issues as her reason for resigning. She served as the town administrator in Sharon for about two years.

Before taking over as town administrator, she was town clerk and deputy town clerk.

Her resignation is effective as of Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, the day after the general election, which it takes experience to help administer. In a press release, the Town of Sharon said it hopes to find a replacement before that time.

“Part of the job is hopefully some transition time, too,” Selectman Chet Bowles said.

Ideally, according to Bowles, a new administrator will be named with enough time to be there with Kazanovicz to get acquainted.

Bowles, who preceded Kazanovicz as town administrator, had been functioning as her assistant because there has already been so much turnover in the town office in recent years. The press release names him as a point of contact for Sharon residents during the transition.

The town is advertising the opening and sent its residents the job description. While the job does not have to be filled by a Sharon resident, Bowles hopes it will be.

“It’s always good in the sense that you know people and you’re here, so there’s access,” he said.
