(Neb.)-City Manager Interviews Complete, Chadron City Council Contemplating
(CHADRON)-Members of the Chadron city council have quite a bit to deliberate after Tuesday evening’s interview phase with city manager candidates Barry Cook of Green River, Wyo., and Wayne Anderson of Chadron. Council members took turns asking both candidates, in separate interview sessions, 20 prepared questions. Questions ranged from what they’ve enjoyed most about their previous or current job to their approach toward managing people and what accomplishments and qualifications have prepared them for such a position. Both candidates agreed to live in city limits and are familiar with a small town way of life. They also were able to ask questions of the council that they as candidates had. Both candidates stressed loyalty, teamwork, and communication as essential elements in their role as city manager. They also mentioned the importance of getting out to meet with and listen to members of the community as well as managing people by helping them to achieve their goals, so they can be a help in return.
The council plans to take this week to mull over the candidates and try to reach a decision of their own as to which candidate they feel is the best fit for Chadron. They will reconvene in another special city council meeting next Monday, July 23rd at 6:00 p.m. to make a formal decision. The public is encouraged to contact any of the council members, Mayor Karin Fischer, Vice Mayor Donny Grantham, and members Jim Mapes, Bill Barth, and Levi Grant, with any input or suggestions they have in this regard.
We will have more from Mayor Fischer and council member Mapes coming up soon.
