City administrator search moves forward

Jefferson City is moving forward with its search for a new city administrator.

At the City Council meeting Monday, 3rd Ward Councilman Bob Scrivner said the selection committee met late last week to discuss future meeting dates. Scrivner, who chairs the selection committee, is the only council member on the 10 member committee.

Former City Administrator Nathan Nickolaus was fired last month, with Mayor Eric Struemph saying at the time that the city needed to move in a different direction. City Attorney Drew Hilpert has been serving as interim city administrator.

Scrivner said the committee plans to meet again in the first weeks of December to begin the process of reviewing applicants. The city is accepting applications through Nov. 15.

“Everything seems to be progressing,” Scrivner said.

In other business, interim Finance Director Bill Betts gave the monthly finance report Monday noting if the current trend of collections continue, the city will be roughly $66,000 short of projections for the end of the fiscal year.

Though the city’s fiscal year ends Oct. 31, sales tax collections run two months behind, meaning the city will continue to receive revenue for the 2013 fiscal year through December.
