    i guess we’ll just go to durango to buy our pot, since our leaders have decided to go against the will of the voters. might as well fill the gas tank there too, and do some shopping at home depot. and buy lunch. maybe catch a movie while we are there. way to go, BoCC!

    City announces finalists for administrator spot

    The City of Branson has narrowed its search for a new city administrator down to two candidates.

    Bill Malinen, of Roseville, Minn., and David Mitchem, Pagosa Springs, Colo., will return for second interviews during the next few days.

    Bill Malinen most recently served as the city manager for the city of Roseville, a suburb of Minneapolis. He has more than 29 years of experience as a city manager in six communities, in three states: Minnesota, California and Washington. He has experience in the planning, financing and construction of public infrastructure projects. His strengths include budgeting, financial management, capital improvements planning and economic development.

    David Mitchem is the town manager of the town of Pagosa Springs, a tourist community in southwest Colorado, where his focus was on enhancing the community’s quality of life and creating a business friendly environment. Previously, he served as CEO of the Castle Rock Economic Development Council, and in various positions with the state of Missouri, including executive director of the Missouri Training and Employment Center, deputy director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, and deputy director of the Missouri Department of Labor.

    “Each of our finalists has demonstrated the ability and qualifications to be an excellent City Administrator for the City of Branson,” said Branson Mayor Raeanne Presley. “Our next step is to introduce them to the department directors and some of the key community leaders that will be working with the new administrator, and hear their feedback.”

    Former Branson City Administrator Dean Kruithof announced his resignation at the end of April, as his wife was taking a new professional position in Bentonville, Ark. His last day was Sept. 6. City Clerk Lisa Westfall is serving as the tnterim city administrator.
