SISTERS, OR -- Sisters City Councilor are expected to name an Interim City Manager, Friday. Councilor David Asson tells KBND News they have a good pool of applicants to choose from. "We had three people apply - two by telephone and one by person. Each had qualities for being an interim manager and they all had an interest in Sisters." One of those candidates, he says, is current Interim La Pine City Manager Rick Allen.
Those three candidates were interviewed by the Council on Thursday. Asson says they'll meet again Friday morning to make a final decision. "They'll be a new meeting by Council to discuss our feelings on the three. And, likely one of those will be chosen to be an interim manager. Probably to work three months, maybe more, taking care of business as it goes along, but also helping us to locate and hire a permanent manager."
Former City Manager Andrew Gorayeb resigned last week after two months on paid administrative leave.
