A process for selecting a new city manager was approved at a special meeting of the Westminster City Council Friday afternoon.
In a closed session, the council voted 3-1 (with Councilmember Sergio Contreras opposed and Councilmember Tai Do absent) to start soliciting applications for the post of the city’s top appointed official as of Monday, Nov. 9, a process described as “council-driven.”
After that, the vetting process would follow to determine “any background” issues. The next and final step would be to select the final candidate.
Westminster has been without a permanent city manager since January, when Eddie Manfro retired. Sherry Johnson, who had been finance director, has been serving as interim city manager.
