Carys budget director resigned last month, according to town staff.
Scott Fogleman, 44, worked 12 years for the town, starting as a financial analyst and quickly rising to the role of budget director.
Fogleman wrote in an email that he had left for personal reasons, declining to elaborate. He did not have any announcement regarding his next move, he wrote.
The town similarly has declined to provide further information, citing privacy laws.
Public records show that Foglemans ending salary was about $130,000; he became budget director in 2001, after less than a year as a financial analyst, at a salary of about $66,000.
Town management began to recruit Foglemans replacement near the date of his departure on June 14, according to spokeswoman Susan Moran. The application period has closed.
