Review of Finance Director Search Firm Proposals

The City  is in the process of receiving three proposals from Executive Search Firms that are interested in assisting us with the Finance Director hiring process.  In addition to their proposal, each firm will be joining us virtually to present their proposal.  The search firms include the following:  4:15 PM:  M&A Chandler McCoy; 4:45 PM:  MRA Valerie Grube; and 5:15 PM GovHR USA Heidi Voohees.  All three firms have extensive experience in executive level searches in local government.  Once the presentations are completed, the City Council will have an opportunity to discuss these proposals and determine whether or not they would like to move forward with the selection of one of these firms.  The item could be approved at the City Council meeting the same evening if the City Council is ready to move forward.  Not all three proposals have been received and we are hoping to receive all three of them by the end of the week or the latest would be Monday .  Once all three are presented, they will be shared as attachments on the work session agenda for review and consideration.  

Sergeant Promotion Process

We have one of our current sergeants that will be retiring this summer.  The Police Chief would like to discuss an existing candidate that remains on the active eligibility list and the timing of when this person could be promoted to sergeant.

EMS Response Update

Staff would like to take the opportunity to update the City Council on its emergency response plans and provide them an update on some staff training that they will be working on in the near future to address how the City would respond to a variety of emergency situations.
