Village Manager

Effective July 22, 2019, the Board of Trustees appointed Mary Beth Murphy as the new Village Manager of Hastings-on-Hudson. Mary Beth will be the first woman Village Manager ever for our Village.  She replaced Francis Frobel, who is retiring from his current position after 14 years of service.  Our new Manager was selected after an exhaustive search in which the Mayor and Board of Trustees reviewed resumes from over 30 candidates and interviewed 9 highly qualified and experienced professionals.

Mary Beth graduated from Fordham University School of Law and Syracuse University after which she practiced law for 15 years.  She comes to our Village with a distinguished career in public service.  Immediately prior to coming to Hastings Mary Beth was the Executive Director of the Westchester County Tax Commission for 5 years. She was responsible for apportioning the County tax levy and providing financial information and reporting to the County Executive and Board of Legislature among other things. 

Prior to that from 1998 through 2013, she was the Supervisor of Somers, New York - a town that is a little larger than our village with approximately 20,000 residents and a 33 square mile footprint. Mary Beth was responsible for the Town’s business activities, operations and constituent services with oversight of all employees and departments.  During her tenure Mary Beth oversaw multiple sewer, water, parks and zoning projects.  She is excited to begin her tenure in our Village and hopes to have opportunities to meet many of the residents in the weeks and months to come.
