Fred Rainguet of KRW Associates, an executive search firm, met with the Delta City Council recently to begin the process of hiring Delta's next city manager.
The opening will be posted with the Colorado Municipal League, Colorado City and County Management Asssociation, International City/County Manager Association, the Delta County Independent, and on the city's website.
The application deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, June 29.
The job description was altered just slightly. Qualified candidates must have a master's degree (public administration or business administration degree preferred) plus three years of experience in public sector administration. Non-profit and private sector executive level experience may be considered.
Candidates with a bachelor's degree may also apply, but they must have eight years of progressively responsible experience. In the past, the council has required just five years of experience.
The salary range is up to $103,000, depending upon qualifications, plus an "excellent benefit package." That's the same salary paid to former city manager Joe Kerby, who also received housing as part of his compensation.
Housing, vehicle allowance, severance package and other elements of the employment agreement will be worked out with the successful applicant, and will likely involve the input of the city attorney and the applicant's attorney.blog comments powered by Disqus
