City administrator candidates visit Basehor for final round of interviews

January 29, 2004

The remaining two candidates still in the running for the Basehor city administrator post will visit the city this week.

Both candidates currently are employed in other municipalities and were selected from among a handful of other applicants by the League of Kansas Municipalities.

Each candidate will have his own day to visit with city department heads, tour the city and speak with City Council members this week.

A decision on which candidate will be offered the city administrator position will not be made until Basehor mayor Joseph Scherer returns from an out-of-town trip Feb. 1, said Julian Espinoza, Basehor City Council president.

Once a candidate is selected, the City Council will form a financial package and officially offer the job, he added.

In its 2004 budget, the city has $65,000 earmarked toward the city administrator position.

It's the City Council's goal to have the city administrator in office by Feb. 21 but Espinoza said he could begin his Basehor tenure later than that date.
