The City of Greenville is still searching for someone to help map out the city’s future.
Applications are still being accepted for the job of City Planner, following the leaving of former Planner Lance Estep last month.
City Attorney Steve Alexander said the city has already received “quite a few applications” for the position, the interview process is already underway and that he “hopes to make a decision mid-to-late January.”
The winning candidate, once chosen, would be eligible for a starting salary of between $45,610 and $70,000, depending on qualifications.
The City Planner works under the general direction of the City Manager in the administration of the city’s comprehensive zoning and development plan.
Applicants are required to possess a Masters Degree in Urban Planning or related field and a minimum two years municipal planning experience.
The job also requires knowledge of the general principles and practices of urban planning.
Estep has submitted his resignation effective November 2 to accept the Planning Manager position with the City of Rockwall.
Estep, who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Geography and Economics and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, joined the City of Greenville in August, 2009.
Those interested in applying for the job can find out more on the City of Greenville web site at www.ci.greenville.tx.us.
