Administrator spot to be filled
New city leader named soon
The Baldwin City Council is close to naming a new city administrator.
"We've narrowed it down, but we're not at the point where we're ready to make a selection," Mayor Ken Hayes said.
The council met Monday and selected a possible candidate to fill the vacant position. Hayes said negotiations were currently underway with the candidate and an announcement of the new city administrator would be made once they were completed.
Hayes said a search committee narrowed the more than 50 applications down to a few finalists. Interviews were conducted with the finalists over the past two weeks.
The city has been searching for a new administrator since Larry Paine vacated the position at the end of February to accept a city manager's position in Concordia. Hayes has been serving as interim city administrator for the past few months.
