Ocean City, Md. is still looking for a city manager after Dennis Dare was forced to resign in September.

The nationwide search for a new city manager in Ocean City, Maryland is underway, with a new hire expected in time for next summer. The manner in which the position became open, however, is still a topic of debate.

Town officials say the Richmond-based Sprinsted Incorporated will spearhead the nationwide search to replace Dennis Dare, who was essentially the resort town's CEO for the past 21 years.

Dare was forced to resign in September by a slight majority of city council members -- who said they were taking the town in a new direction.

Since then, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan has been pulling double duty, serving as interim city manager. The search is expected produce a new leader in March.
