Hutto City Council voted 6-0 in favor of selecting Strategic Government Resources as the search firm it will utilize in its permanent city manager hiring process. A contract for SGR will be presented to council by city staff for approval prior to engaging in an official agreement. As its selected firm, council will utilize SGR's resources and will be presented with 8-10 candidates for consideration of its city manager position.
Hutto City Council approved its top three firms in its search for a permanent city manager at council's Feb. 20 meeting, following a Jan. 16 vote approving a request for proposal to officially begin its search process.
Strategic Government Resources, Bakertilly and Affion Public were voted on by council as its top candidates for consideration, with in-person interviews scheduled for council's special-called meeting Feb. 27. Hutto City Council could potentially decide on its top firm Feb. 27 or may postpone the decision until council's March 5 meeting. Once a firm is selected, council will then utilize its resources to hire a permanent replacement for its city manager position.
