Re-Starting the City Manager Search

Posted: Updated:

Minot's mayor says he's glad to see the process re-started for finding a new city manager.

Mayor Curt Zimbelman told city council members Monday night that, after current city finance director Cindy Hemphill turned down the city manager job, it was the right thing to do to start over.

Hemphill had been chosen by the search committee from among three finalists.

But she decided she could better serve the city's interests by remaining in her finance director position.

Now, the mayor says advertisements for applications will go out soon.

(Curt Zimbelman, Minot Mayor) "We'll try to move the process along as fast as we can but at the same time this committee that is involved - citizens committee - really wants to make sure we have the right person for the job and so - it's not something we really wanted to do, go through another search process, but we thought it was the right thing for the community."

Whomever is hired will take over for David Waind, who attended his final city council meeting as city manager last night.

He thanked the council and city staff for their support over the years, and received a standing ovation from the council members, honoring him for his service to the city.
