MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Maplewood Township Committee stated on Tuesday that Sonia Alves-Viveiros has been selected as the next Township Business Administrator, according to an email from Maplewood Mayor Vic DeLuca.
Alves-Viveiros is currently Maplewood's Assistant Business Administrator, a position she has held since September 2016. Previously she was the Deputy City Clerk in Summit and Assistant to the Municipal Clerk/Human Resources Assistant in Bernards Township, according to the email from Deluca.
Alves-Viveiros received her Bachelor's degree and her Master's degree in Public Administration from Seton Hall University.
"I am excited and eager to continue working with Maplewood Township to build on its efforts in being a welcoming community," said Alves-Viveiros.
She will be appointed at the Township Committee meeting on May 1, and is slated to begin her new role on June 1.
"Ms. Alves-Viveiros was selected from six very qualified candidates interviewed by the Township Committee. Her commitment to Maplewood, her knowledge of municipal management practices and her plans to optimize the delivery of municipal services to residents convinced the Township Committee she was the right person for the position," said DeLuca. "We look forward to working with her for many years to come."
The current Township Administrator Joseph Manning announced in November his plans to retire at the end of May.
Manning, a Maplewood resident, held the top administrative spot for 12 years.
