Adam McGurk, Moon Township's assistant manager and planning director, will leave his position at the end of the month.
McGurk, who has worked for the township since 2007, said at last night's Moon Board of Supervisors meeting that he would be moving to New York City with his wife, whose job has been relocated. He has not accepted another position. His last day of work with the township will be April 29.
"This just kind of fell into our lap, but I've really appreciated the chance to work for the township," McGurk said. "I certainly wasn't looking for another position."
Board Chairman Jim Vitale said McGurk was "moving on to bigger and better things."
"He has grown into a true professional here, and he will be missed," Vitale said.
