New Town Manager to Start December 1st.

I, Tim Pellerin, started my municipal career in 1980 as a fulltime firefighter, rising through the ranks to become fire chief in 1994. Served as a fire chief for 24 years before becoming a town manager in October 2013. I have been working as a municipal town manager for last 8 years, currently serving the Town of Harrison, Maine, in Cumberland County. I am certified in Emergency Management, Municipal Management, and Human Resources and municipal budgeting. I have extensive experience with union contracts and negotiations, tax collections, municipal budgeting, along with road maintenance. I have 2 adult children, my son lives in Saco, and my daughter and granddaughters live in Rhode Island. In my off time I enjoy golf, (not very good, but practices a lot!), fly fishing and spending time with my family and my dog Gracie. I am looking forward to working with the Town Council and staff to face the next challenges of the future and best serve the citizens of South Berwick.
