City to host meet, greet of city administrator candidates @ Sheridan College Edward A. Whitney Academic Center atrium.
Sep 20 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The city of Sheridan will host a meet and greet of candidates seeking the city administrator position on Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Sheridan College Edward A. Whitney Academic Center atrium.

Candidates will be available to meet area residents and discuss the role of the city administrator.

At a meeting earlier this month, Sheridan City Council members and attendees spoke via teleconference to John Hodgson, the senior consultant for The Prothman Group, regarding the role of the city’s administrator position.

The Prothman Group was hired by the city of Sheridan to lead job search efforts for the position that was approved last year.

During the discussion, Hodgson explained the process his company and the city plan to use to hire the administrator. Once the field is narrowed down to five applicants, there will be an opportunity for the community to meet the candidates in an informal setting — the purpose of Tuesday’s gathering.

At that time, city officials said, the group will provide a short biography of each of the candidates. This allows community members to provide feedback on each of the candidates.

The following day, the council, key community members, selected staff members and others will conduct interviews with the candidates. Later, council members will select the candidate to take the position.

No timeline was given for when the position is expected to be filled.

The city administrator’s salary is listed at $105,870 – $161,513 annually, plus benefits; the position was approved by the city last fall.
