City Manager Search Committee Looking for Help from Citizens

Springfield is looking to the public to help find a new City Manager. KSMU's Jana Greer has more.

The Springfield City Council recently approved a resolution establishing a search committee to find a new City Manager and is looking for members of the public to serve on the committee. Mayor Pro Tem Gary Deaver will chair the committee and will include council members, staff and members of the public. The goal of the committee will be to conduct a nationwide search to replace City Manager Bob Cumley, who announced his plans to retire on June 1 of next year. Gary Deaver is the Mayor Pro Tem for Springfield. He says he and the city council want the public to be involved in the search.

Deaver says there are other ways the public can help the search by providing their input.

To apply for the committee or to provide your input, you can visit the city's website by using the link at You can also request a mailed application by calling the city clerks office. The deadline for applications is November 30.
