After nearly four years working for Robinson, manager Aaron Bibro is resigning to take a job in the Philadelphia suburbs.
Mr. Bibro, 33, of Robinson, has accepted a job as township manager of Hatfield, Montgomery County. He starts April 1.
His family decided to move to be closer to relatives, he said.
"It has been a pleasure working under the leadership of the board, alongside the talented and passionate township employees, to serve the residents of this beautiful community," Mr. Bibro wrote in his Jan. 28 resignation letter.
Robinson commissioners voted 5-0 Monday to accept his resignation, effective March 29, and wished him good luck.
"Your tenure here has been great," Chairman Samuel Abatta said. "You've given some good and pertinent advice."
The township will advertise the manager job, hold interviews in March with a goal of hiring a replacement around April, Mr. Bibro said.
Mr. Bibro was Robinson's assistant township manager for a year before assuming the head manager post in June 2010.
An employment contract required Mr. Bibro to give Robinson 60 days' notice before leaving his job. His salary this year was $75,850.
Mr. Bibro said his decision to depart was "100 percent" for family reasons. He and his wife, Rebecca, have a 9-month-old son, Landon.
"My wife's family is from that [Philadelphia] area, and I have a brother in that vicinity too, so we decided it's the best thing," Mr. Bibro said.
Mr. Bibro grew up in Dormont and attended Central Catholic High School. He holds a master's degree in public administration from Villanova University and a bachelor's degree in journalism from Point Park University.
His proudest accomplishments in Robinson include helping improve the township's financial stability; investing in infrastructure and facilities; and increasing communication with residents through the website, emails and meetings.
"I think I created a good relationship with community groups and businesses throughout the township," Mr. Bibro said.
The past several years have been memorable. Not only did he hold his first municipal job in Robinson, but he also got married, bought a house and welcomed his first child.
"Obviously I have a lot of memories attached to this place," he said.
