In searching for a city manager in late 2015, Delta City Council clearly stated a desire for "longevity" in the top job.
A brochure describing the job opening suggested candidates looking for potential "stepping stone" opportunities look elsewhere.
After three rounds of applications and interviews, consuming much of 2015, the City of Delta has hired David Torgler as city manager.
For the past five years, Torgler has served as city manager of Hayden, a town of just 1,800 residents on Highway 40 between Craig and Steamboat Springs.
Four city manager finalists were in Delta for a tour and interviews this week. The candidates -- Don Gaeddert, Dan Hamsmith, George Korthauer and David Torgler -- also met with community members at a well-attended reception Monday night.
The Delta City Council has announced four candidates for the city manager vacancy, selected from 46 applicants for the position.
The finalists are Don Gaeddert of Larned, Kan., Dan Hamsmith of Parker, George Korthauer of Petoskey, Mich., and David Torgler of Hayden.
This Thursday, Delta City Council will be sitting down in an executive session to review the applications for city manager. A total of 45 applications were received as of the Oct. 9 deadline.
Delta Mayor Ed Sisson reports the search for a new city manager is moving forward as anticipated. The city's consultant, The Mercer Group of Carbondale, told Sisson 45 applicants had indicated interest in the position by the Oct. 9 application deadline.
