Chillicothe City Council members approved the mayor’s recommendation to establish a search committee to assist in the selection process for the next city administrator. The committee is being formed following the resignation of Ike Holland, who accepted a city administrator position in Minnesota. Each councilman recommended one individual from his ward to serve on the committee, and those recommendations were forwarded to Mayor Chuck Haney to present the full slate during Monday night’s City Council meeting. The committee, as approved unanimously by the council, consists of: Tom Ashbrook (1st Ward), David May (2nd Ward), Dave Rogers (3rd Ward), and Don Ratliff (4th Ward). The committee will begin meeting after April 3, the deadline for submitting resumes. The city is advertising for a city administrator appointed by the mayor and five-member council. The successful candidate should have a bachelor’s degree in public/municipal administration or related field with 3-5 years experience, a master’s degree preferred. Residency is required. Salary is negotiable, based on qualifications.
