Mayor's Island Review

June 2019

June is a great month at Emerald Isle.  It is the beginning of summer, the weather will be warm and it is a great time to go to the beach.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Interim Town Manager Randy Martin for the outstanding job he has done as our Interim Manager.  Randy is such a warm and caring person and it has been my pleasure and honor to have worked with Randy for the past 7 months.  He is just a wonderful person and his work and dedication is very appreciated.  Thanks Randy for a job well done.  I will miss working with you!  May God bless you in your future endeavors.  You have made a difference in Emerald Isle!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Matthew R. (Matt) Zapp as our new Town Manager.  He will begin his duties on Wednesday, June 12.  Matt comes to us from Benson, North Carolina where he has served as Town Manager since 2010.  Before that he served as Village Administrator of Madison Village, Ohio.  He served in that capacity from 2005-2010.  Matt holds a BA from the University of Akron and a MPA from UNC-Wilmington.  He has held many different positions of leadership in his local community and in other organizations.  Matt is married and he is the father of six children.  I would like to welcome Matt and his family to Emerald Isle.  Please join me in welcoming Matt to our Town.
