Search Begins for New Lamar City Administrator

The Lamar City Council will meet in special session, Monday, May 2 at 6:30pm to review applications for a new city administrator. The executive session meeting will not be open to the public. Friday, April 29, was the deadline for candidates to submit their applications for the position which will become available on July 8 of this year, if not sooner, pending the hiring of a replacement. Current city administrator Ron Stock submitted a letter to the council on March 14 of this year, announcing his resignation after almost four years in that position.

Almost thirty applicants have submitted their resumes, including current deputy administrator, Bill Pfeilsticker. His application was one of six from Colorado, which includes a former Granada resident. Submissions have come from such geographic extremes as Florida and Alaska, and closer to home such as Kansas, Texas, Arizona, Nebraska and New Mexico. The council is reviewing all applicants in this search. A search committee of local citizens was formed following former administrator, Jeff Anderson’s retirement, and the committee gave their recommendations to the council for its approval.

It’s not expected than any announcement will come from the Monday evening council meeting.
