Larry Shelton, Principal for Chell Consulting, LLC, gave a quick informational meeting to the Council about what the process would consist of and what their time windows were in regards to allowing for applications and when to begin interviews for the position. Shelton said that there had already been over 25 applicants in less than three weeks time for the city manager position and more continue to come in.

"The information is being sent to all adjacent states as well as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida," Shelton said.
Because of the impact of recession in these states, Shelton said that there will be more people looking for jobs and will make for a better market to pull candidates from.
When discussing information about possible candidates, he assured the council that their names and personal information would be kept confidential to not only keep council members from having any sway either way, but also to keep the candidates from becoming public record. Shelton will hang on to the personal information until the council begins narrowing down the field to the point of interviewing. Council members will also be receiving constant updates from Shelton as new applicants turn in their information.
Shelton also discussed some of the criteria that the council is looking for in a candidate, as well as some things that he said were important in finding a potential candidate.
"We really want to find someone to move the city in the right direction," Shelton said to the council. "They should also be looking to stay for five to ten years, and if we're going to find a great candidate, we're going to have to pay for it."
By "pay for it," Shelton was referring to the salary that the city manager would be paid. He said that potential young candidates would more than likely not be given the same price range as someone who was much more experienced. The council also asked Shelton if he could get the salary rates for city managers in cities not only of similar size, but also within the area.
He also made a point that unemployed city managers applying for the job are not necessarily bad candidates.
"They could be great city managers," Shelton said. "They may have just made the wrong person mad at the wrong time."
When candidates are no longer accepted, Shelton said he would be sending a questionnaire to them that would give the council and Chell Consulting a good idea as to how they think in certain situations.
"And know that the candidates will research the City," Shelton said. "They will want to know about the City before they come for an interview so they are as comfortable with (The City of Duncan) as possible."
After running through the basic candidate information and talking with the Council about the selection process, he began asking for deadlines. The Council decided that they would no longer accept applications and resum├ęs after March 31, 2010, and that the interviews would begin on April 24. The Council also discussed having a special meeting on April 6 so they could hammer out the details for the interviewing process.
Shelton was excited to help Duncan search for a new City Manager, and he told the council that he's sure they did the right thing by hiring him for the job.
"This is you're hire, I'm here to work for you," Shelton said to the Council.
