Larry Logan has resigned as Hancock's Town Manager, Mayor Daniel Murphy announced during Wednesday's Hancock Town Council meeting.

Logan, 56, has been town manager since September 2002.

Wednesday's meeting was the last at which Logan would be present as town manager, Murphy said.

Logan on Aug. 5 gave notice that he would resign, effective in 30 days.

"It has been an interesting experience. I enjoyed it," Logan said before the meeting.

The item regarding Logan's resignation was the last one on the agenda.

After that, the council was scheduled to meet in closed session to determine how to go about replacing Logan, Murphy said.


Logan said he plans to travel with his wife, Donna.

He said he hopes that he helped the town during his time as town manager.

Murphy thanked Logan for his service.

"We wish you and Donna the best of luck in your endeavors," Murphy said.

Logan's time as town manager was not without incident.

In January 2004 the council, acting on a recommendation of the Hancock Ethics Commission, voted unanimously to place in Logan's personnel file a copy of a ruling that he violated a town ethics law.

The commission ruled that Logan violated town law when he wrote a Jan. 25, 2003, letter criticizing Councilman Darwin Mills, who was running for mayor against incumbent Mayor Daniel Murphy.

Murphy beat Mills in the election by 44 votes.
