by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Manager vacancy left by Gus Collins in April most certainly did not go unnoticed.
The Wellington City Council received 53 applications for the manager’s position. However, Wellington Mayor Roger Stallbaumer cautioned that 15 resumes are probably legitimate.
“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.
