Council is right to use search firm
Placeholder Image
Last week, the Monroe Common Council took a very important step in finding the next city administrator. The council voted 5-4 to hire a professional search firm to choose qualified candidates for the open city administrator position.The job has been open since May 2008, when Mark Vahlsing left the position. Since that time, the position has seemed to be a thorn in the city's side.In December, when the council decided to revisit filling the vacant position, we wrote that we were encouraged by the decision to move ahead after more than a year without someone at the helm of the city's administration full-time.
