Government experience now optional for city manager applicants

Posted: Thursday, March 05, 2009

JUNEAU - A Juneau Assembly committee tasked with revising the city manager search policies met Wednesday to edit the wording of four documents related to the search. The main intent of the wordsmithing is to encourage more people to apply, particularly candidates with nonspecific executive experience, rather than exclusively government administrators.

The candidates from the first search, which wrapped up Feb. 27, didn't pass muster with the Assembly. Assemblyman Randy Wanamaker said he will present the committee's recommendations to the full Assembly at a meeting Tuesday.

Current City Manager Rod Swope intends to leave the post April 30 to avoid burnout. Deputy City Manager Kim Kiefer will handle Swope's responsibilities in the interim.
