The City of Maitland sadly mourns the passing of City Manager Sharon Anselmo on Monday, May 30, following a brief illness.
Sharon served the city for 24 years, beginning as senior accountant and advancing through several management positions before her appointment to assistant city manager in 2012 and city manager in 2016.
Her dedicated leadership and quiet, friendly and trusted management style helped to guide Maitland through important advancements including the ongoing modernization of water and wastewater facilities, top certified police and fire emergency services and new parks and recreational facilities. Her tenure with Maitland included establishment of a thriving downtown center with construction of City Hall and Fire Station 45 in 2012, Independence Lane in 2018 and Independence Square in 2020. Fire Station 47 opened in 2004 and a new police station opened in 2009 - both facilities located on Fennell Street in west Maitland.
Sharon tirelessly approached public administration through compassion, experience and knowledgeable decisions, always offering her most whenever the city needed her. She is fondly remembered as a warm, approachable and witty member of her second family.
Together, city staff along with elected and appointed officials mourn the loss of a cherished friend and manager. We extend our hearts and prayers to Sharon’s family and loved ones.
