City manager candidates visit Aug. 25

An Aug. 25 "meet and greet" for the public and a full day of interviews is being arranged for the five city manager finalists, City Attorney Craig Ritchie told the council at its Monday meeting.

Ritchie said city staff met last week with the consultant, Waldron & Company, who is working on the plan for community and staff involvement.

All the information will be presented soon, he said.

A "meet and greet" for the public and a full day of interviews for the five finalists are being arranged for Aug. 25, Ritchie said.

In April, the council hired the Seattle-based executive search firm Waldron & Company to find a new city manager by mid-September.

In June, the council set the salary range at between $100,000 and $130,000 with the position to be filled by mid-September.

Linda Herzog has been Sequim's interim city manager since December 2008.

In May 2008, the council voted 4-1 to fire city manager Bill Elliott. Schubert left before the vote, McHugh voted "no," and Huizinga was absent.

Police Chief Robert Spinks served as interim city manager until Herzog was hired.
