MB city administrator hunt continues

The clock is ticking on the search for a new city administrator in Mexico Beach.

The City Council held a special meeting Monday to discuss the administrator position which will only be occupied for two more weeks.

In April, city administrator Chris Hubbard resigned leaving former administrator John McInnis to fill in during the interim.

Upon filling in, McInnis only planned to stay in the position through June and as his final day of work approaches the council has yet to fill the role.

In May, council members hired Range Riders, a head hunting group out of Panama City, to help screen candidates.

More than 40 applications were received position and the recruiters whittled them down to a final six that were recommended to the council. Of those six, the council interviewed three over the first weeks of June.

During a special meeting earlier in the month, the council voted to offer the position to Charles Williams of Jasper, Fla. who had gone before the council several weeks earlier.
