A selection committee has been meeting to develop a job description, screen resumes, set interviews and make recommendations to the two boards. The committee members are Cindy Gilbert, for the metro district board, Jeff Layman, of the property owner’s board, Ken Marchetti, the district’s financial consultant, Neil Mulholland, from the metro district’s development committee, and residents Jen Wright and Reed Ford.

“It’s clear that some of our issues are nearing a critical stage,” Layman said. “Improvements aside, our financial situation will be dire if we don’t act very soon. Getting a professional manager in soon to work with Ken Marchetti, our boards and our employees is critical to our success.”

Local experience is one qualification the committee is looking for in a manager, Layman said.

People with experience in city or community management, business, real estate development, urban planning and other fields are encouraged to apply, he added.
