Treme retiring Aug. 1

SALISBURY — City Manager David Treme plans to retire Aug. 1, he announced at this afternoon’s City Council meeting.
Treme, who has been city manager for more than 25 years, told the Post in January he didn’t have a date in mind after the council voted to give him a bonus of at least $35,000 at retirement. If Treme had remained until the end of 2012, the bonus could have doubled to $70,000.
The council offered the incentive as a recognition of the 63-year-old Treme’s service and an effort to keep him at the helm as the city is still in the early stages of its fiber-to-the-home telecommunications system.
Treme said at the time he was pleased the council wanted him to stay and would “work for them as long as I’m able.” He said today, however, that knowing he wouldn’t remain until the end of 2012, he thought it was best to retire.
He has worked in local government for 40 years.
The council did not discuss who would replace Treme.
