New full time Administrator in Great Bend not expected until after the first of the year

While the City of Great Bend continues to search for a new interim City Administrator, a full time administrator will not likely be hired until after the first of the year. That’s according to City Attorney Bob Sulter who is currently filling the spot vacated by Howard Partington who retired in August.

Suelter says they are conducting interviews this week to find someone to serve on an interim basis, but says the city will likely wait until after the November elections to find a full-time replacement.
