The national search for a new Mill Creek city manager is underway, and the City Council hopes to have a new leader in place at the City next spring.

At its Nov. 27 meeting, the Mill Creek City Council selected Peckham & McKenney as the executive search firm to conduct the recruitment for a new city manager.

The search process began Dec. 10 when the recruiter from Peckham & McKenney, Drew Gorgey, met individually with the City Council to identify specific traits and leadership characteristics of successful candidates. He also solicited input from the staff. The firm will now work to create a candidate profile and initiate the recruitment by the end of the year.

The tentative recruitment timeline includes:
  • Open recruitment through Feb. 18;
  • Preliminary interviews and recommendation of candidates by March 12;
  • Finalist interviews by March 22/23; and
  • Identification of a preferred candidate by March 29.
