Council discussed making Wilson the interim during closed session March 19. After reconvening in open session, council approved the action with a 4-1 vote. Council Member Phil Ellett was the lone vote against the action.
Earlier this month, City Council selected recruiting firm Strategic Government Resources to help the city conduct a city administrator search. According to a timeline provided by SGR, a permanent city administrator will likely not be hired until mid-July at the earliest.
Council also set a three-hour public workshop with SGR for March 26 to further discuss the hiring process. The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. at 3205 Jones Road, Sunset Valley.
