Bemidji City Council to informally begin city manager search process in meeting Monday

The Bemidji City Council will discuss the process for a search for a new City Manager in their meeting Monday.

Early this month, the council passed a resolution 4-2 to remove Manager Nate Mathews, amid some public scrutiny and criticism.

Two weeks ago, the council unanimously accepted his resignation in a special meeting.

City Clerk Michelle Miller is handling the responsibilities of the City Manager until a replacement is found.

An executive search process for positions like the City Manager generally takes at least a few months and usually requires hiring a firm that can seek out people who best fit the job.

The council will also hold the final reading for the city’s rental code amendments, discuss an agreement for repairing the 1st Street water tower, and hold a conversation about council board and commission reporting.

For an audio preview of the meeting, tune into KB101’s Chatabout show at 12:15 p.m. on Monday.
