PROVINCETOWN – After nearly two years, Provincetown has a new town manager.

Selectmen came to terms on 3 year contract with David Panagore this week. Panagore’s salary starts at $140,000 per year.

His first day on the job is August 31st.

Panagore, 50, comes to the Cape from Connecticut, where he works as the executive director of the New Haven Parking Authority. Panagore previously worked for the City of Hartford as its Chief Operating Officer, and has also held positions in Springfield and Chelsea.

“We’re very excited. He’s going to make an excellent addition to Provincetown and the Cape,” said Chairman of the Provincetown Board of Selectmen Tom Donegan.

Officials are hoping Panagore can help address the difficulties Provincetown is facing with affordable housing. Selectmen offered the job last year to Richard Reinhard of Washington D.C. Reinhard did not take the job, citing concerns over the cost of housing in Provincetown and the difficult job prospects for his husband.

“If we lose our housing, we have nothing left,” said Donegan “The town will be gone.”

This marks the closing of a lengthy search process that began when former town manager Sharon Lynn resigned in 2013 to take the city manager’s job in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
