The way forward is still relatively unclear, but the Eldora City Council is starting to set some guidelines as it moves toward deciding what to do about its vacant city administrator position.
The council met Thursday for a special workshop to discuss the future of the city administrator position. The position was most recently held by Dave Mitchell, who resigned in December 2019 after two years on the job. Before that, the city went eight months without an administrator after the council voted in March 2017 to terminate previous city administrator Bruce Bierma’s contract. During discussion on Thursday, council members suggested everything from a full-time city administrator, to a part-time employee, to restructuring city hall to permanently eliminate the position.
