Salado aldermen may take action March 9 to enter into an employment agreement for a city administrator. The Village posted an agenda for a special called meeting of the aldermen for 6:30 p.m. March 9 at the municipal building.
Aldermen interviewed three finalists for the job on Feb. 23: Don Ferguson, city manager in Wimberley, Dennis Baldwin, interim city manager in Killeen and William Lewis, from Arkansas.
Baldwin has served as interim city manager for the City of Killeen since Oct. 2016. He was the Chief of Police in Killeen prior to taking on the interim position. He became a police officer in 1984 and was named Chief of Police in Killeen in 2004.
Ferguson has been city administrator of Wimberley for 10 years. The Wimberley city council voted in February to amend its employment agreement with Ferguson to end his employment as city administrator there in 90 days.
William Lewis is a retired City Manager that has worked for cities up to the size of 70,000.
Aldermen will go into closed session for discussion “regarding contract negotiations for the Village Administrator candidate.”
The board will then consider possible action on an employment agreement for the position of Village Administrator.
Aldermen unilaterally severed the employment agreement it had with Kim Foutz on Oct. 6, effective on Nov. 7.
The Village contracted with Texas First Source in October to provide city administrator services with David Miller as the interim city administrator on a part-time basis.
Miller left his position here last month.
While aldermen were slated to hire another interim administrator, the board opted not to do so.
