EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – After a brief search that began in February, the Bronxville Board of Trustees has named Mount Kisco Village Manager James Palmer as the new village administrator.
Palmer -- who has been village manager for six years and has worked in Mount Kisco for more than two decades -- will officially replace interim Village Administrator Donald Marra on Monday, June 23. Marra will continue in office until Palmer begins his assignment.
In Mount Kisco, Palmer was responsible for working cohesively with Mayor Michael Cindrich and a Board of Trustees to monitor financial needs and oversee the budget process.
As village administrator in Bronxville, he will oversee the day-to-day operations of the village. His responsibilities will include keeping the village Board of Trustees apprised of the village’s financial state, overseeing various village employees and studying how Bronxville may become more economically efficient.
Outside of his term as Mount Kisco village manager, Palmer’s resume also includes time as a village clerk, assessor, building inspector and a human resources manager.
“I am very pleased that James Palmer will be Bronxville’s next village administrator,” Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin said. “His experience and reputation as a hardworking and knowledgeable administrator, as well as his proven track record, made him a very attractive candidate.”
Palmer could not be reached for comment in his Mount Kisco office on Thursday. According to Bronxville officials, the village and Palmer have not yet agreed upon a salary.
