DEWEY BEACH, Del. — A new town manager has been chosen for Dewey Beach.

The Daily Times reports the town commission chose Scott Koenig in a 5-0 vote on Saturday.

There were 25 applicants for the position, who were narrowed down to four. Two of those accepted interviews.

T.J. Redefer, the mayor of Dewey Beach, says the contract process will now bring Koenig to the town.

The move for a new town manager comes after controversy with the former town manager, Marc Appelbaum, who left during the fall.

Appelbaum had been faced with allegations of racism, sexual harassment and misuse of authority.
