Anthony Troiano signed a three-year contract this week to be Hopkinton's first-ever town manager. His hiring is contingent on approval of funds at a special Dec. 21 Town Meeting. His annual salary will be $100,000 if approved and Jan. 1 is his tentative start date.
Longtime Executive Secretary Ted Kozak was not included among the finalists despite protests from some selectmen.
Muriel Kramer, the chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen, said she hopes Kozak will stay on for the first two months of the new town manager's tenure to streamline the transition, but the selectmen are still negotiating that arrangement with him.
