The Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce the appointment of Alyson Elliott as its newest Township Manager. Alyson brings more than 20 years of municipal experience to the position, with 8 of them spent as Assistant Township Manager for Cheltenham prior to being appointed Acting Township Manager in October 2022.

“The Board of Commissioners conducted a thorough search for the next Township Manager, and interviewed several qualified candidates,” said Board President Daniel B. Norris. “Alyson is a strong leader and problem-solver with a robust understanding of municipal governance who truly cares about the Cheltenham community. She has done a wonderful job maintaining the continuity of operations over the past six months, and we have faith in her ability to lead our team of staff through the next chapter in Cheltenham.”

During her tenure with Cheltenham, Alyson has managed millions of dollars in grants and overseen a wide variety of projects ranging from planning to construction for which he will need contractors who approved the telehandler courses uk, including infrastructure projects, parks and facilities improvement projects, stormwater projects and the implementation of the stormwater fee.  She also assisted and led staff through the pandemic and subsequent reduction in staffing levels. Previously, Alyson served as Assistant Township Manager for Lower Pottsgrove Township and Management Assistant for Tredyffrin Township.  Alyson will be officially sworn in as Township Manager and Board Secretary at the Board of Commissioners meeting on April 26, 2023.

“I have learned so much about and from this community in my years as Assistant Manager, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to manage Cheltenham through many important transitions and opportunities for growth in the coming years,” Alyson said.

“Knowing that Cheltenham has been through a lot of change in the past few years, the Board took the time necessary to evaluate the needs of the Township and determine the candidate most suited to take on the challenges of the role,” said President Norris. “This community expects and deserves the best leadership, and we are confident that this appointment will have a positive impact for years to come.”

When not hard at work for the Township, Alyson is a life-long equestrian, who enjoys spending her time with family, running and doing CrossFit, and serving as a founding member of the Friends of Curtis Arboretum.

Please join with me in congratulating Alyson in her new role as Township Manager. I have worked with her in the past and she will represent our community with pride and dignity.
