Pfeilsticker Offered Lamar City Administrator Contract

Bill Pfeilsticker

Current Lamar Deputy City Administrator, Bill Pfeilsticker, will be offered the position of City Administrator at Monday night’s city council meeting, July 11.

The action is listed on the city agenda, to be approved, pending negotiation of a contract and salary between Pfeilsticker and the city.

If accepted, Pfeilsticker will replace the man who hired him as deputy, city administrator Ron Stock, in 2009. Stock’s last day in the city administrator position was Friday, July 8. He had submitted a letter of resignation to the council in March of this year.

Pfeilsticker was one of 37 candidates reviewed by the city council and one of three who made the short list for personal interviews. A public meet and greet session was held in the latter part of June at the city’s Cultural Events Center. The other two candidates were Brent Lewis, a city administrator from Minden, Nebraska and Pat Merrill, the former city administrator of Fort Morgan, Colorado.

Pfeilsticker said he had been bored with retirement from his previous positions, which included Finance Director of Leesburg, Florida and county administrator for Wabasha, Minnesota for several years. He was also involved in financial planning during his career with the Air Force.

Pfeilsticker has been representing the city in his deputy administrator position in several capacities for the past several months, including Intergovernmental Agreement negotiations with the county and hospital district.
