“We will partner with the City to recruit a Finance Director that embraces the values of the City, will be an asset to the management team, demonstrates a supportive working relationship with the elected officials, and has the financial management experience necessary for success,” said Alan Reddish, senior associate of Mercer Group Associates, in the proposal.
Mercer Group has conducted executive-level searches for local governments, authorities, and governing boards across the country, the proposal states. In the last six months, the agency has done finance director searches for Hall and Liberty counties and the city of Milton.
The search will be a national search. Mercer Group Associates will conduct a position analysis, advertise the job posting, review resumes, do candidate screening, conduct background checks and interview candidates.
During the work session, the city commission will discuss amending the tower lease with Crown Castle to include the sublease of 35 square feet to Dish Network for $500 per month and a signing bonus of $2,000.
