DEWEY BEACH, Del. - Dewey Beach Town Manager Marc Applebaum has been removed from his position after an agreement was made between he and the town council on Saturday.

The deal was reached during the town council meeting.

Applebaum has been at the center of controversy in the Delaware beach town after allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination were brought to light earlier this year.

Recently, an independent investigation was conducted into the allegations against Applebaum.  The investigation suggested that Applebaum be formally reprimanded, but not suspended or fired.

In September, the town commissioners decided to not take any action regarding Applebaum until town leaders had adequate time to read the report.

Following Saturday's town council meeting where an agreement was made to have Applebaum removed from his potiation, town commissioner Gary Persinger told WBOC, "This is an unfortunate situation.  But we've found ways to resolve it for both sides.  We need to move on."
