City Manager Search Continues

Posted: Updated:

The search for a new city manager will continue rather than conclude.

Minot City officials report the search committee narrowed the list of candidates down to 3, from a list of 36.

Last week, all three candidates were given the opportunity to introduce themselves, give an overview of their vision for the city and interview with the search panel.

After further interviews and meetings, the committee chose current city finance director Cindy Hemphill as the best candidate for the position.

Hemphill was offered the job this week, but she declined, saying she could best serve the citizens of Minot in her current capacity as city finance director.

The two other candidates have already been eliminated.

Therefore,  the search committee has decided to begin the process again.

Meanwhile, City Manager David Waind has announced an offer has been accepted for a new city attorney.

That decision is awaiting approval from the City Council Monday night.

Colleen Auer of Scottsdale Arizona has been recommended to replace John VanGrinsven.

Pending her transition to the city, it is expected she will start within the next 30 days.
