Search For New Yankton City Manager Slow

Search For New Yankton City Manager Slow

It's taking the city of Yankton longer than expected to hire a new city manager.

Former city manager Doug Russell left in mid-June, and the city has hired a consultant to help find Russell's successor. They'll be paying the company a maximum of $19,500.

Yankton Mayor Nancy Wenande says the consultant interviewed the commission and community leaders about what they'd like to see in a new city manager.

Wenande says that profile hasn't been finished yet.

The consultant hoped to have a new city manager in place by mid-October. Wenande says it shouldn't be a problem if the process takes longer.
