Wanted: One city manager

The City of Kelowna has begun the search for a new city manager.

Ron Mattiussi, who has served as the city's top bureaucrat for the past 13 years, is retiring at the end of March.

An ad, posted on the city's website Wednesday, says the position is for the chief administrative officer for the city, responsible for ensuring council policies and programs are properly implemented.

It goes on to say:

"He/she provides information, advice, and support to mayor and council and assists in developing policies, programs, and strategies at their direction.

"The city manager also assumes full responsibility for city operations and services, providing direction and reinforcement for corporate values while upholding high ethical standards and providing leadership, inspiration, and oversight of city staff."

Deputy city manager Joe Creron will serve as interim city manager until a successor is found.

The city manager oversees 900 employees and an annual budget of $350 million.

Mattiussi is the highest paid employee within city hall, taking in $268,000 in 2016, the last year figures are available.
