City, job candidate continue discussion on work agreement
A finalist for the vacant Basehor city administrator position has responded to the city council's contract offer with some provisions of his own, mayor Chris Garcia said this week.
While not elaborating on the provisions, Garcia said, "It's nothing that should be a deal-breaker."
On Jan. 4, the council met in a special meeting to discuss a contract to offer the candidate. A day later, on Jan. 5, members unanimously approved a contract offer, complete with salary and benefits.
Terms of the deal have not been made public.
The council received a response from the candidate at the end of last week. Garcia briefed council members about the candidate's requests during a work session Monday evening.
They are scheduled to vote on the contract during a meeting Jan. 19.
