Littleton City Council Will Continue City Manager Search

Post Date:02/08/2017 10:09 a.m.

The Littleton City Council has decided to continue its search for a city manager, reopening the process to accept additional applications. The council will continue to work with the Dallas, Texas-based executive recruitment firm Waters & Company, who it contracted with in October at a fee of $26,150. The contract includes a guarantee that the company will remain with the recruitment assignment until an appointment is made for the fee and tasks quoted in the proposal. A timeline will be developed soon for the new recruitment process.

The initial recruitment yielded a pool of 29 candidates. Six were invited to Littleton for interviews with three panels: city council members, department directors, and a group of citizens selected by the council. “We really appreciate all of the applicants who expressed an interest in becoming Littleton’s next city manager,” said Mayor Bruce Beckman. “Selecting the city manager is probably one of the most important tasks a city council will undertake and we want to make absolutely certain we choose the best person for Littleton,” Beckman added.

Public Works Director Mark Relph was appointed Acting City Manager on July 19 and will continue in this position until a new appointment is made.
