New City Administrator Named in Branson
Branson has a new city administrator. The city’s Board of Aldermen voted to promote Branson police chief, Stanley Dobbins, to the position effective January 1.
Dobbins has served as interim city administrator and police chief since May 24, after the departure of former city administrator William Malinen.
Branson Mayor Karen Best says the board of aldermen chose Dobbins because of “the excellent leadership skills he exhibited” while serving in the dual roles. She says he knows the community’s goals and can hit the ground running.
"I look forward to my new role here at the City, and the task of working with the Mayor, Board, City employees, residents, and visitors to this wonderfully unique community to make it a great place to visit, live, and work,” said Dobbins.
A nationwide search will begin soon for a new Branson police chief.
