Council to continue search process

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council plans Tuesday to take the next step in the process of finding the next city manager.

The Council intends to discuss the city manager’s position as part of an executive session during Tuesday’s regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is set for 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Following an executive session at the close the regular agenda two weeks ago, the Council voted 4-3 to hire a firm to conduct a search for a new city manager. The vote did not specify a firm nor award a contract, but was seen as making a decision to proceed with the search process.

Director of Public Works Massoud Ebrahim was appointed in May as the interim city manager for the City of Greenville, in the wake of the Council terminating former city manager Steven Alexander’s contract.

Director of Human Resources Barry Robinson previously told the Council the process of finding a new, permanent city manager could take at least four months, depending on whether the Council chose to employ a search firm or employ from within.

During Tuesday’s meeting, the Council is scheduled to convene in executive session under Local Government Code Section 551.074 - City Manager Selection Process which allows the Council “to deliberate to deliberate the appointment, employment, evaluation, reassignment, duties, discipline, or dismissal of a public officer or employee;  or to hear a complaint or charge against an officer or employee.”

Should the Council take any action concerning the executive session item it would return to open session to do so.
