Wellington City Manager job opening gets lots of interest

Sumner Newscow local news report

“A lot of those are random resumes sent out for any job opening out there,” Stallbaumer said. “But I do anticipate we have some very qualified candidates in that bunch.”

But first comes the budget which the Wellington City Council will approve in August.

“The budget comes first,” Stallbaumer said. “We aren’t going to even think about filling the city manager position until we get the budget put together.”

The Wellington City Council has made one decision about the hiring process.
