The City of Lancaster will be needing a new,

city administrator. That’s because Stephen Crane

has announced his resignation to take a job in




Crane will be taking the job as Town Manager

in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, a community of

just under 16,000 people in southwestern

Massachusetts. Crane came to Lancaster from

Worcester, Massachusetts, where he was the

Special Projects Coordinator.

Crane worked as city administrator in Lancaster

for just short of four years. What will he miss

most about the city ???


Crane’s last day in Lancaster is April 1st.

He’ll be getting a pay raise along with his

new job, making just over $100,000.

He’s currently paid $77,000 a year as Lancaster’s

City Administrator. However, it is a fact that the

cost of living is higher in communities in the

eastern United States.
