Interim City Manager is on the job

Last month the City Manager for the City of St. Johns, Dave Kudwa, resigned. Beginning on March 13 former City Treasurer and Assistant City Manager Kristina Kinde as the Interim City Manager in an official capacity.

At the time of his resignation Kudwa pointed out that it is important to have continuity. Commissioner Eric Hufnagel added that the precedence that had been set so far is that the Assistant City Manager would take on the interim role.

Now the search is on for a new City Manager. The Commission approved a contract with Walsh Municipal Services to conduct the search.
