Opinions sought for City Manager search

Del Mar Civic Center

The City Council is seeking insight from Del Mar residents about what qualities and attributes they value most as the Council moves forward in the process to select a new City Manager.

A community survey published this week poses four questions:

  • What skills and experience are most critical for a new City Manager to succeed in Del Mar?
  • What management and leadership attributes should he or she have?
  • How would you like the City Manager to interact with the community?
  • What else should the City Council consider during the recruitment?

Residents are encouraged to respond to the survey, which closes at 5 p.m. Oct. 20.

In June, City Manager Scott Huth announced his plans to retire in February after eight years as the city’s top executive.

Last month, the City retained the search firm Bob Murray & Associates to assist with the recruitment of Huth’s replacement.

A schedule presented to the City Council shows that a finalist is expected to be named in December or January. The schedule and a list of key attributes for Del Mar’s City Manager are included in a Sept. 9 City Manager Recruitment Update (PDF).
