Panama City Searches for New City Manager


Panama City commissioners are searching for a new city manager. 

During a special meeting last month, the commission voted to terminate the previous city manager, Jeff Brown’s employment. Now they’re on the hunt to fill the position.
Currently the assistant city manager, Jared Jones, is filling the role as the official process of hiring a new city manager gets underway. Mayor Greg Brudnicki says they’re hoping to have the position filled as soon as possible– but estimates it will probably take about 4 to 6 months. 

This was the first commission meeting since brown’s termination and Mayor Brudnicki says the process of searching for a replacement has only just begun.

“We’re going to take a request for qualifications from head hunters and then get those in. When we get resumes from people, if we’re not satisfied with what we get then we’ll probably hire a head hunter,” said Panama City Mayor, Greg Brudnicki. 

If you’re interested in applying for the position, you can bring your resume to city hall and give it to the city clerk, Darlene Hachmeister.
