City Of Ann Arbor To Host Special Session To Discuss Next Steps In Hiring A New City Administrator

Sep 10, 2020

Ann Arbor’s city council will hold a special session Monday night September 14th to discuss the next steps to take in hiring a new city administrator.  

Between now and Monday, the city encourages residents to submit feedback on the candidates to their respective council members.  The three finalists are Ann Arbor’s current interim city administrator, Tom Crawford, Cara Pavlicek, village manager of Oak Park, Illinois, and Eric Wobser, the city manager of Sandusky, Ohio.  Council Member Kathy Griswold from the second ward says, as of now, the city has not decided the duration of the employment contract. 

Council Member Kathy Griswold: I’m hoping that we make a decision on Monday either to make an offer to one of the three candidates or abandon the process.  

Council could also postpone the city administrator vote until its next regularly scheduled meeting on September 21st.
