CUMBERLAND — Town Manager Bill Shane was named citizen of the year by the Cumberland-North Yarmouth Lions Club.
“There’s nobody that came close to affecting our community in such a positive way,” said Town Councilor Jeff Porter, who is a Lion. He cited two major road improvement projects, the expansion of the Twin Brook Recreation Area, and Shane’s devotion to attracting business to Cumberland.
Shane, 52, is married and has two sons, and has lived in Cumberland 18 years. Prior to becoming Cumberland’s manager he was town engineer in Yarmouth for 14 years and Wiscasset for three.
