Helped wanted: city administrator in League City
Five months after its previous city administrator resigned, League City is finally advertising that the position is open for hire.
A listing for the job was posted Tuesday on the Texas Municipal League's Web site by The Mercer Group, which the city hired earlier this year to lead its search for a city administrator.
The listing requires that candidates have a bachelor's degree in public administration or a related field and at least 10 years of experience in public administration or a related field. A master's degree in public administration or a related field is also preferred.
The position's salary will be market competitive depending upon the experience and qualifications of the successful candidate," according to the listing.
Since July, Marcus Jahns, 63, a municipal government consultant, has been League City's interim city administrator. He replaced former city administrator Chris Reed, who resigned in June and has since become city manager of Nassau Bay.
Mayor Toni Randall was not aware that the listing for the city's administrator position had been posted, but said it was cool."
Let's drop a line in the water and see if anybody bites," Randall said. That's what that's all about."
Yet Randall said there is no timeline for hiring a new city administrator because City Council is pleased with the performance of Jahns.
We're just advertising," she said. We'll see what comes along."
