Mitchell candidate for Philomath city manager position
Charlie Mitchell’s days in La Grande might be coming to an end.
A story in the Corvallis Gazette-Times says that Mitchell is a candidate for city manager in Philomath.
According to the story, Philomath City Council members approved a resolution directing out-going Philomath City Manager Randy Kugler to enter negotiations with Mitchell, who is the community and economic development director with the City of La Grande.
Kugler said Mitchell was the council’s top choice out of the three candidates interviewed over the past month and a half, according to the report. He added that the council potentially could approve an employment agreement with Mitchell at its regular meeting Jan. 13.
The story said Kugler plans to stay with Philomath until the new city manager can take over, which would include time for Mitchell to give notice in La Grande and move.
