The council is currently conducting a recruitment for the candidate who will ultimately succeed current City Manager Brad Kilger who is retiring at the end of January. The application submittal period closed on November 26th. Due to the holidays, the Council expects to choose the top candidates to be interviewed in January.
In an effort to involve the community in the process, the City has posted an online survey for residents to weigh in on the qualities they would like to see in Martinez’s next city leader.
The Martinez city manager is appointed by the City Council and is responsible for addressing the priorities established by the council, and overseeing day-to-day operations of the city. The current job description for the Martinez City Manager position can also be found here.
“The City Manager is the Chief Executive Officer of the City and it is important that the City Council choose an individual who is not only highly qualified, but also a good fit for Martinez,” said Mayor Rob Schroder. “Obtaining input from our citizens on what they feel are the important issues the next City Manager should address and the key skills and attributes they should possess, will assist the City Council in that effort.”
The survey will remain available through January 11th. If the public has any questions, please contact Rica Guidry, Executive Assistant to the City Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
