The Town of Culver may soon have a new Town Manager.
A vote was taken Tuesday night that saw the Culver Town Council approve making an offer to the potential candidate. A name has not been released at this time while the Council awaits the candidate to accept the position.
Culver Town Council President Ginny Bess Munroe says working with different groups in the Culver community interests the candidate, and was able to offer a few clues on their background.
“He’s excited about moving to small town Culver and this environment,” says Munroe. “He’s educated, he has a public administration degree, he has experience with municipal work, he has experience with the county level where he’s at. Assuming he takes the job I think he’ll really embrace the community.”
Culver has been in the search process since former Culver Town Manager Dave Schoeff resigned in October of last year.
A consultant has been used in the hiring process, but the Town had to extend its search process to find the right candidate. Culver has had difficulty keeping a Town Manager on for more than two years, according to previous reports.
Interviews were conducted in December. Munroe says even new members to the Town Council were able to sit-in on the interview process.
“I feel great about the choice; it was a 5-0 choice – which is a great feeling too,” says Munroe. “We all agree that this is the person we want to come work for Culver.”
An announcement is expected to be made shortly.
