The Delray Beach City Commission on Tuesday unanimously chose Terrence Moore to be the next manager.
Moore has been manager of four cities in four states, most recently the Atlanta suburb of College Park. He has 10 years of experience in Florida. From 1995 to 1999, he was an assistant city manager in Deerfield Beach. From 1999 to 2005, he was the manager in Sebastian, a city of 25,000 near Vero Beach.
City Attorney Lynn Gelin will negotiate a contract with Moore. Only when the commission approves it will Moore officially be hired.
Moore would be the city’s ninth manager since January 2013, counting those who served on an interim basis. Former Purchasing Director Jennifer Alvarez has been the interim manager for almost a year.
