The City of Dalhart City Council started the search for the new City Manager in January with the retirement of long-time City Manager James Stroud, who had served in that capacity for over ten years.  The City Council received proposals from firms interested in assisting with the recruitment of qualified candidates and selected Strategic Government Resources (SGR).  The City Council has been working with SGR and after a written exercise as well as an online self-interview, background, and reference reviews, have narrowed the City Manager Finalists to four candidates. 


The four candidates invited to Dalhart to interview for the City Manager position are Suzanne Bellsnyder, Owner, High Plains Strategies; Stacey Norris, Director of Community Development and Tourism, City of LaGrange, TX; Cynthia Northrup, City Administrator, City of Rhome, TX and Jared Schumacher, Circuit Rider / Grants Manager, Maryland Rural Development Corporation, Town of Sykesville, Maryland.  Residences will have an opportunity to listen to and meet the candidates at the Meet & Greet scheduled for Sunday, May 22 at 4:30 pm at the Coliseum.  Residents will also have the chance to provide their thoughts / comments to the City Council. 


The City Council will meet on Monday, May 23rd in a Special Council Meeting, Executive Session, for the purpose of conducting interviews with the four finalists.  Input from residents and City staff will be considered.


The City Council hopes you will attend the City Manager Meet & Greet on Sunday, May 22nd.
