ISLESBORO, Maine — The Islesboro town manager has resigned one month after signing a two-year contract to extend his position.

Jeffrey Grossman has been the town manager for the island since November 2009.

Islesboro officials said Wednesday that Grossman will leave his post at the end of this month. The town has not selected anyone to replace him.

Town clerks Wednesday would not speculate about why Grossman left, but the Village Soup newspapers suggested he had difficulty getting along with the town’s new board of selectmen.
