(CHADRON)-After a brief meeting Monday night, the Chadron city council selected Chadron resident Wayne Anderson as city manager elect for the city of Chadron. Members opted to vote by written ballot, and the vote was unanimous in favor of Anderson. Upon hearing the council’s decision, Anderson, who was sitting in the audience, let out a deep breath and said, “Wow, thank you.” Several employees came up to Anderson to welcome and congratulate him. Upon being reminded that the vote for him was unanimous, Anderson grinned and said, “Wow, I’m still just…that’s neat.” He added, “This afternoon, I had come up with all sorts of ways that it could go the other way, so I’m really surprised.”
The council met in executive session to discuss contract particulars amongst themselves and then invited Anderson into the executive session to hammer out negotiations and terms of the employment contract.
A short time later, the group adjourned with news that the ball was now rolling. Anderson is going to look over the contract and bring it back later in the week. Mayor Karin Fischer says the plan is to have everything in motion so that Anderson can be officially voted in at the council’s August 6th meeting. Anderson will finish up work at Northwest Community Action, his current employment, and then will most likely shadow interim city manager Ted Vastine for a couple of weeks to better orientate himself with the city manager position and responsibilities.
We will have more comments from Anderson, Mayor Fischer, and council member Bill Barth coming up a little bit later.
