New sustainability manager…coming soon?

After a day of phone tag with City Manager Bill Watkins, I wasn’t able to get a lot of specifics on the status of the new sustainability manager. What I did gather from talking to Sixth Ward Councilwoman Barbara Hoppe and Assistant City Manager Tony St. Romaine was that there should be announcement on the position — and soon.

Hoppe said that she didn’t know too much but that some interviews were conducted last Friday, Jan. 15. She said she expects an announcement within the week. St. Romaine said he couldn’t reveal names but knew that the applicant pool had been narrowed down to a few finalists.

Watkins said in September he expected to fill the position by January.
