The Village of Hastings-on-Hudson is located on the eastern shore of the Hudson River, 20 miles
north of midtown Manhattan with a population of 8,008 (2017 US Census). It has a fascinating
history with many distinguished artists, performers, writers and scholars who contributed to its
cultural past and present. Among its many resident artists was famed Hudson River School of
Painting artist Jasper Cropsey. The Village is home to a museum dedicated to Cropsey located in
his former residence and studio.

Main Street illustrates harmonious blending of old and new which may be one reason
Westchester Magazine honored Hastings-on-Hudson with its 2008 Best Main Street award.
Several circa 1900 structures coexist well there with the James Harmon Community Center, a
beautifully reconstructed building that opened in 2007 and the 25-unit Riverton Lofts
condominiums, a state-of-the-art “green” building that opened in 2008.

The Village Government consists of a 5-member Board of Trustees including a Mayor, with a
total General Fund Budget of $15,542,302, a staff of 62 full-time employees, and 34 part-time
employees. In testimony to the long-term stability of the Village and the Village Board, only two
village managers have been employed during the past forty years.

The candidate should have excellent leadership and communication skills and knowledge of
municipal law, budgeting, human resources, labor negotiations, information technology, as well
as the ability to work in a team environment. BA/BS with Masters in Public Administration
preferred and a minimum of 5-years municipal management experience is required.

Salary is open and commensurate with background and experience.
