Oct. 7: Your Criteria for the New City Administrator

– What qualities would you want in a new City Administrator ? –

At 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 7, 2013, the Piedmont City Council will take public testimony on the experience, education, and qualities desired in the new City Administrator. This meeting will provide an opportunity to give input to the City Council on the traits you would like to see in a new City Administrator. This meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont.

City Administrator Geoffrey L. Grote announced in August that he will retire in February 2014 after 25 years in his position. The City issued a Request For Proposals for executive search firms in August and received proposals from five firms. After reviewing the proposals, at its meeting of September 16th, the City Council engaged the services of the firm of Peckham and McKenney to recruit a new City Administrator. The process of recruiting a new City Administrator, expected to take several months, begins with this upcoming meeting.

You are invited to attend this meeting to express your thoughts on the experience, education, and qualities desired in the new City Administrator. The Council also encourages those who cannot attend the meeting to submit comments via email or in writing.

You may send email to jtulloch@ci.piedmont.ca.us or via U.S. Mail to the Piedmont City Council, c/o City Clerk, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont, CA 94611.
