Fair Haven’s new borough administrator, hired last night by the Borough Council, is a 28-year-old woman with three years experience in municipal administration, today’s Asbury Park Press reports.

Mary Howell replaces Julie Horner-Kiezer, who left last month to become borough administrator in Seaside Heights. Howell’s contract and salary haven’t been finalized, but officials hope to have those details wrapped up later this month.

From the Press:

Howell has been deputy manager in Eastampton Township, in Burlington County for the last three years. Before that, she ran a nonprofit in Charleston, N.C.

Eastampton is about five square miles, is located next to Mount Holly and in 2000, had a population of 6,202 people, according to the township Web site.

Fair Haven had 5,937 residents at the time of the 2000 Census.
