The Minot City Council has chosen three finalists for the City Manager position.
The Council met Oct. 22 in executive session to choose finalists from a list of nine semifinalists. A recruitment firm hired by the City interviewed all 50 applicants and identified the pool of semifinalists. The three finalists will be interviewed in Minot on Nov 4-5.
The finalists are:
- Shawn W. Henessee, former county manager in Clark County, Wash.
- Harold L. Stewart II, current city manager in Warrensburg, Mo.
- Ray O. Agbabiaka, current director of community development in Matteson, Ill.
Meet-the-candidate videos will be provided through the City’s Facebook page and Youtube channel, and a virtual open house will be held on Nov. 4. Residents will have the ability to submit questions to the candidates through Facebook or YouTube during the virtual open house.
On Nov. 5, the three finalists will take part in two interviews and a tour of the city. Interviews will be conducted with the City Council and with a separate panel of stakeholders. Because of COVID-19 gathering restrictions, community members are encouraged to watch the interviews through the City’s social media platforms or on local cable channel 19.
