City Manager Recruitment Process

The City has hired the Novak Consulting Group to assist with the City Manager Recruitment Process. The position description and marketing materials are currently in production and will be ready for publication the first week of September. The position will remain open through the beginning of October. City Council will review applications with the project consultant, Catherine Tuck Parrish, from the Novak Consulting Group around the middle of October. Due to the upcoming City Council Election in November, the finalists will be named after the election has been conducted. Once the finalists are named, interviews will be held in early December.

City Council is interested in learning more about what employees, Board & Commission members and citizens desire in the next City Manager. Focus Groups will be conducted by a professional facilitator, June Ramos, on the following days:

  • Wednesday, August 9 from 6-8 pm in the City Council Chambers. You MUST RSVP to KathleenH@Louisvilleco.gov to reserve your spot as space is limited to 30 participants. If more than 30 participants sign up for this session, a random drawing will be held to get the number to 30.
  • Thursday, August 17 from 6-8 pm in the Library’s Main Floor Conference room. You MUST RSVP to KathleenH@Louisvilleco.gov to reserve your spot as space is limited to 30 participants. If more than 30 participants sign up for this session, a random drawing will be held to get the number to 30.

If you cannot attend one of the Focus Groups, you can also:

  • Log on to www.EngageLouisvilleCO.org and answer the questions regarding the City Manager recruitment by Wednesday, August 23rd, or
  • Stop by the City Booth at Farmer’s Market on Saturday, August 12th and provide feedback.
