Council continues search for administrator
The city of Eudora continued its search for a full-time city administrator with interviews of three candidates last week.
Eudora City Council members interviewed Scott Hildebrand, who is the risk manager and a city attorney for the city of Lenexa; Bret Bauer, who is the assistant city administrator for Smithville, Mo.; and Mark Loughry, who is the assistant city manager for Hays.
The council also interviewed former Basehor city administrator Carl Slaugh on June 28.
Interim city administrator Mike Wildgen said he would like to have his replacement hired by the end of July.
City Councilman Jeff Peterson said via email that the council had narrowed the field to two candidates and was researching references and salary expectations.
Peterson said the council likely would further discuss the candidates at an executive session before Monday’s meeting. He also expressed the need for a candidate to be hired as soon as possible.
