Interim City Manager Mark McAnarney is working towards a smooth transition from the Matt Zimmerman administration into the future -- regardless of whom city commissioners pick as the next permanent city manager.
McAnarney joined KVOE's Newsmaker segment to discuss the city's goals and objectives as well as his own once a new city manager is on board. McAnarney has been part of city government since the late 1980s, and he says this is a good time to discuss his future goals and objectives.
City commissioners appointed McAnarney as interim city manager last week, following Zimmerman being named as city manager in Hazelwood, Mo., starting this upcoming weekend. Zimmerman will join KVOE's 8:05 am newscast Thursday before a farewell reception at White Auditorium Little Theater from 2 to 4 pm Thursday.
Commissioners will start looking for a new city manager in earnest early next year. They have not said how long it could take to bring a new city manager on board.
