The following is an excerpt from the article: Mayer selects new administrator

By Ivan Raconteur, Correspondent

The council interviewed three finalists for the position July 20. After those interviews, the council directed Pat Melvin, a management consultant with David Drown Associates, who coordinated the administrator search for the city, to work with the personnel committee to negotiate a contract. The city extended an offer to Nicholas Johnson, the council’s first choice. Johnson accepted.
Johnson will receive a salary of $97,000 per year. He will start Monday, October 3.
Following Monday’s meeting, Melvin noted that Johnson “impressed the council with his knowledge and experience in local government.”
Melvin provided the following information: Johnson currently serves as the city administrator for the City of Fairfax, where he has been in the role since 2017. Before this, he served as the city administrator for the City of Marshall for one year and as the city administrator for the City of Canby for six years. Johnson holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration from Minnesota State University – Mankato.
Ruch expects to present a contract to the council for approval at its next meeting.
The council discussed extending Ruch’s contract from September until Johnson is available to start in October. The council also approved an additional four hours per week for Ruch, who is currently approved for 20-24 hours per week.
