As the interview process for a new Crestwood city administrator gets rolling, the city's aldermen have officially put out a request for new legal services, too.
Robert J. Golterman, who's served the city in various capacities for more than 20 years, announced in September he planned to leave his post at the end of the calendar year, or once a replacement has been chosen. Crestwood aldermen voted Tuesday night to put out their formal request for qualified applicants. The job posting went live on the Crestwood city website Wednesday afternoon.
The proposal was modeled after similar drafts by other municipalities, including University City, Golterman said.
"Experience with Missouri municipalities and knowledge of municipal law, Sunshine law, and contract law is preferrable," the drafted proposal reads. "Generally, the City Attorney may anticipate the job requiring 10-20 hours per month."
Applicants have a 45-day window to submit their qualifications. Aldermen will appoint a committee to review the submissions.
The Crestwood-Sunset Hills Chamber of Commerce is also looking to hire. Last month Executive Director Mary Ann McWilliams announced her intention to retire after 11 years with the Chamber. Those interested in filling her shoes can skim through the job description on the Chamber's website, and send their resume via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. (They can also be dropped off in the Chamber office at 9058-A Watson Rd.
Some of the qualifications needed for the position include:
- Marketing the Chamber's programs, events and activities, and preparing the monthly newsletter,
- Manage the Chamber office and supervise staff,
- Maintain membership base and solicit new members,
- Preparing the annual budget,
- Prepare financial reports and oversee day-to-day invoices, deposits, and preparing information for the Chamber's accountant.
This is not a 9-5 job; the ideal candidate must be able to attend all Chamber functions.
