VILLAGE MANAGER SEARCH PROCESS
In December 2020, the Village Council chose to utilize the services of an executive search firm to conduct the process to fill the Village Manager position. Through a request for proposal process, Colin Baenziger& Associates was chosen to conduct the Village Manager search.
The services to be provided by Colin Baenziger & Associates include but are not limited to conducting a needs assessment, developing a position description, preparing recruitment and advertising materials, recruiting, evaluating and screening of candidates, notifying candidates during process, preparing and presenting candidate materials, and assistance with finalist interviewing and selection.
The timeline for the process, shown below, was provided for a Village Council Workshop held on February 24, 2021. The emphasis of the workshop was to discuss the characteristics preferred for a new Village Manager to be utilized by Colin Baenziger & Associates to create a recruitment brochure and evaluate the candidates as the process moves forward.
The recruitment brochure was created and the position was advertised, on schedule, beginning March 12, 2021 with an application deadline of April 9, 2021. Utilizing the planned timeline for the search process, the selection of candidates for interviews is scheduled to occur May 20 and a hiring decision could be made by the Village Council on June 2, 2021.
The Village Council welcomes community input and asked for public input submitted via email to the Village Clerk to be distributed to all Council Members and to Colin Baenziger. Please use the subject line “Village Manager Search Input” for your emails to email@example.com.
