City Council to discuss search for new manager

The Nevada City City Council on Monday will discuss the search for the next city manager to succeed Beryl Robinson, who announced his retirement two weeks ago.

The city’s manager for the past 361/2 years, Robinson is scheduled to retire April 30.

Mayor Kerry Arnett proposed three sample ads, which, he said in a letter to the City Council, give all the pertinent information on the city.

According to ads to be published in Western Cities Magazine, the city manager supervises a staff of 25 full-time employees and a budget of $3.9 million. Candidates are to call City Hall for more information or request an application packet, the proposed ads read.

The ad must be e-mailed to the magazine Tuesday, Arnett said.

City Councilman Steve Cottrell provided copies of a dozen want ads for city managers in California. Cottrell also wrote an ad requiring that candidates for city manager of Nevada City have at the minimum a bachelor’s degree in public/business administration and at least five years’ work experience as city manager, assistant city manager, or as head of a municipal department.

The City Council meets 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 317 Broad St.

For information, call 265-2496.
