Frisco still taking applications for town manager’s position

Lu Snyder

FRISCO – The deadline is nearing for applications from those interested in becoming the new Frisco town manager. Applications will be accepted through April 29.

Town officials hired Robert Slavin, president of Slavin Management Consultants of Norcross, Ga., to assist with their search for a new town manager.

At this point, Slavin has interviewed Mayor Bob Moscatelli and each council member individually, plus the Frisco management team, to compile a profile of the desired candidate, said Assistant Town Manager Theresa Casey.

Slavin is responsible for whittling the number of candidates to seven or fewer individuals whom best fit the profile.

Among the characteristics town officials are looking for are experience managing small resort towns and a strong financial background, said the town’s interim manager, Tim Mack.

Town officials are planning to interview the final candidates the week of June 3 -which is the town’s pride week, Casey said. Doing so will give residents a chance to meet the candidates at the community picnic and give candidates the opportunity to learn about the community, she said.

“We hope, at that time, there’s a clear and present forerunner,” Casey said.

“Our intent is to have somebody hired by Aug. 11,” Mack said. Whether that person is at his or her new desk and working on that date is not known yet, as it is standard that town managers be required to give 40 to 60 days upon resignation.

Former Town Manager Clay Brown left his position in early February. Mack, Frisco’s public works director, has been filling in as interim town manager since Brown’s departure, and will continue to do so until the new town manager arrives.
