Rushford selects city administrator candidate

The city of Rushford has closed in on its choice for new city administrator, after four months of discussion, review of the job and selection process, and interviews. February 8 the city council declared a vacancy for the position following the resignation of former administrator Steve Sarvi, who served the city for nearly five years. Sarvi officially stepped down February 19. The council noted previously that the search to find the last administrator was noticeably drawn out and aimed to streamline the process this time.

The first step in the process was to review the job description and scoring process for applications. Council members then each chose a citizen representative to serve on the selection committee. The selection committee included Mayor Hallum, Councilors Terri Benson, Vern Bunke, Mark Honsey, and Jim O’Donnell, Library Director Susan Hart, Police Chief Adam Eide, and citizens Megan LaFleur, Jeff O’Donnell, Don Paulson, Sally Ryman, and Anne Spartz.

The ten applications received were scored on various items, which reduced the applicant pool to four candidates who were then interviewed by the committee May 14. Candidates Tony Chladek, of Rochester, and Abraham Algadi, of Worthington, were brought back May 24 for final interviews with the selection committee.

After two one and a half hour interview sessions, the council unanimously voted to make an offer to Chladek. He accepted the offer and financial details are now being worked on. Final approval of his hire will be brought forth at the June 13 council meeting. Chladek previously served as Economic Development Director for the city of Luverne and city administrator for the cities of Stewartville, Merrill, and Crookston. Most recently, he’s served as a business investment analyst and marketing consultant for Chladek Construction.

In other news from the May 23 council meeting, the city council has approved the seeking of bids for a double fuel tank system at the Rushford Municipal Airport. The plan was originally put forth by the Rushford Airport Commission in 2014 and 2015, but the project was halted when bids came in more than 25% higher than engineer’s estimates. Now, using the same basic bid specifications, the commission and Mead & Hunt Engineering are hoping some minor changes will nab more competitive and viable bids.

This go-round, the timeline in the bid will be extended to the spring of 2017. City Clerk K .....
