Final Interviews Conducted for New City Administrator

The final interviews for the Lamar City Administrator position are being conducted today, Friday, July 13, at the city complex.  Council members and the five candidates are in the final phase of the interview process before the council will make a selection for the next city administrator.  That should occur in the next few weeks.

A public meet-n-greet was held for the candidates and local residents Thursday evening at the Lamar Community Building.  The gathering was small, but key members of the community including the college, banking, economic development, the county and others, were on hand to meet with each of the five and briefly explore their civic and managerial backgrounds.

Mayor Roger Stagner said the council is fortunate to have as many good choices as it does among the candidates.  “We have a good group of qualified persons,” he added.

The five candidates offer a cross-country representation, with some from Maine, Vermont and Michigan, to closer to home with one candidate from New Mexico and another from Colorado.

The search of a new administrator began shortly after former City Administrator, Bill Pfeilsticker resigned at the end of February.  The council brought in Steven Rabe as an interim administrator who initiated the search for a permanent replacement.
