The City of Cleveland Heights is now accepting applications for a new city manager.
Community Services Director Susanna Niermann O’Neil has served as interim city manager since Bob Downey's abrupt resignation in April.
Interested parties should apply here. The city will review the first round of resumes in mid-January.
Cleveland Heights Patch asked Kelley what is he looking for in a candidate. City manager experience? A longtime Cleveland Heights resident?
"What I really want to find in a candidate is someone that understands, that appreciates and can work with our diversity in our city. But I also want someone who has a vision for the future as far as finances, as far as development, as far as youth issues, senior issues. I want the whole package," he said. "And somebody who the staff feels comfortable working for."
