Despite pressure from prominent community leaders to convince City Manager Jim Nuse to stay put, the San Marcos City Council is about to begin its search for a replacement, a process it hopes to complete by the end of the year.

Nuse has agreed to retain the municipal government’s top administrative position until a new city manager is named, Mayor Daniel Guerrero said. The council is negotiating details of a contract with a head-hunting firm to recruit a new city manager and will soon publicly release a timeline for the search process, Guerrero said.

“Mr. Nuse has agreed to stay on until we identify a new city manager and that is maybe the most significant change that has happened since this started when Mr. Nuse announced his retirement,” Guerrero said.

One thought on “Council aims to pick new city manager by year’s end [PRO]

  1. Interesting.

    This article really ought to be in the free section. Just my opinion.

    I get that you want to provide value to the paid subscribers, but I don’t know if the City Manager search headline will draw them in, and while subscription numbers (I suspect) are still low, a fairly important story is tucked away where many won’t see it.

    It’s a difficult balance, I know.

    At any rate, thanks for the article. It certainly paints an unfortunate picture.
