Mayor Don Roberts announced on Thursday that Mike Press has been hired as Edgerton’s interim city administrator.

Press, who currently serves the city as a consultant, replaces outgoing City Administrator David Dillner, who has resigned his position to accept a job as city manager of Abilene, Kan. Dillner’s last day as Edgerton city administrator is Feb. 7. He will train Press until that time, according to Roberts.

Roberts also has appointed Edgerton resident Irene Eastwood as interim city treasurer. Eastwood, who replaces Mary Ann Schmidt, will serve in that capacity until May, when Roberts plans to appoint a permanent city treasurer.

Dillner and Press already have plenty of work to do – the city’s 2011 budget must be submitted to the state by the end of the month. As of the morning of Jan. 28, the budget had not been posted on the city’s website.
