The Ames Tribune (Iowa) reported today that Melissa Mundt, Gardner assistant city administrator, is a finalist for a similar job in Ames.
Gardner City Council members currently are seeking to replace former city administrator Stewart Fairburn, who left the community last February for a job in Oklahoma.
His replacement process was stopped last year after two of three finalists for the job withdrew their names. Mundt served as interim-city-administrator during the search process. However, council members hired Mike Press, former Johnson County manager, to serve in the interim when the search was temporarily ceased.
The city is currently accepting applications for city administrator.
