Common Council puts manager search into motion


The Human Resources Committee will review search materials and consider the mayor’s recommendation to hire a consultant.

The city paid $22,324 to The Mercer Group for consulting work in the previous search, Meg Hungerford, city finance director said. The group’s proposal was $15,000 for services with expenses capped at $8,000, she said. 

On May 30, Hungerford, acting city manager, will assume duties of Michael H. Long, who is retiring May 29.

On Tuesday, the council also approved a motion supporting a review of the Oneonta City Charter. Miller in a memo has asked the Charter Commission to reconvene for the task, with Laurie Zimniewicz, a former commissioner, as chairwoman.

In November 2011, voters adopted the revised charter, which established the position of city manager and took effect Jan. 1, 2012.
