NEWBURGH – The Newburgh City Council is not going to renew City Manager Joseph Donat’s contract, a source close to the situation told Mid-Hudson News.
Donat has been city manager for two years and the council has decided not to sign a new agreement with him.
Donat came to Newburgh after serving as Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney’s Mid-Hudson chief of staff and was instrumental while in that capacity securing federal funds for the city’s fire department.
He could not be reached for comment Tuesday evening.
Mayor Torrance Harvey would only say there would be some announcement on Friday.
