AGENDA ITEM NO. 1: Discuss and consider setting compensation for the interim City Manager.

A motion was made by Commissioner Schrzan, seconded by Commissioner Peterson, to approve annual salary for interim City Manager at $92,000 with a $500 travel allowance per month. Motion carried 6-0.

AYE: Schrzan, Peterson, Holt, O’Neal, Mills, Collier
NAY: None

AGENDA ITEM NO. 2: Authorize staff to proceed with advertising for City Manager position.

Mayor Mills stated the advertising for City Manager should begin now to see what the market will bear. Commissioner Schrzan expressed concern that all commissioners should be involved in the process, including the job description and the deciding on which publications to submit the advertising.
Mayor Mills read the generic advertising copy, provided by Human Resources Director Kelly Howard, as a starting point. Commissioner Schrzan thought the commission wanted to change the job description to reflect the direction the city needed to move toward. Commissioner Peterson said the generic ad could run now and everyone still be involved in the process of deciding on what the commission is looking for in a City Manager. Mayor Mills suggested running the ad now and if there are no applicants then something else would need to be done such as hiring a headhunter.
Commissioner Holt stated that with the summer schedule it would be difficult to set meetings for July and August. Commissioner Collier suggested the ad be run now and applications be received by the Human Resources Department. The commission could then meet to decide exactly what they are looking for before seeing the applications.
A motion was made by Commissioner Peterson, seconded by Commissioner Holt, to authorize staff to proceed with advertising for City Manager position with the understanding the position will be open for applications 45-60 days and applications will not be reviewed until the commission has decided what they for looking for in a City Manager. Motion carried 4-2.

AYE: Peterson, Holt, Mills, Collier
NAY: Schrzan, O’Neal

AGENDA ITEM NO. 3: Budget transfer.

Finance Director Neva Treiber reported the compensation to Dr. Collard would need to be encumbered this fiscal year, even though it will be paid out over a six month period. The money is available from the street department regular salaries due to a turnover in employees in that department which left a surplus.

A motion was made by Commissioner Schrzan, seconded by Commissioner Collier, to approve the transfer of $60,000 from the street department’s regular salaries to the city manager’s regular salaries to compensate the six months severance package for Dr. Collard. Motion carried 6-0.

AYE: Schrzan, Collier, Peterson, Holt, O’Neal, Mills
NAY: None

AGENDA ITEM NO. 4: Adjournment

There being no further business to come before the meeting, a motion was made by Commissioner Collier, seconded by Commissioner Holt, that the meeting be adjourned. Motion carried 6-0. (5:30 p.m.)

AYE: Collier, Holt, Schrzan, O’Neal, Mills, Peterson
NAY: None
