Watertown taking applications for their first ever City Manager

WATERTOWN, S.D.(KWAT)–Applications are coming in from people who’d like to become Watertown’s first-ever city manager.

Mayor Sarah Caron says the application period is open until March 15th.

Then the city council will meet on April 5th to narrow the list of applicants down to about a half-dozen finalists who’ll be brought to town for interviews.

Caron says the consultant that’s helping them hire a city manager indicated there would be a good amount of interest in the job, and there has been.

The city manager will be hired and on the payroll by July 1st.
