Fairborn residents interviewed in search for next city manager

UPDATE @ 10:30 p.m. (Nov. 29): Colin Baenziger, the consultant hired to recruit the next Fairborn city manager, interviewed city residents to fulfill that part of the hiring process.

“I’m in town to get a feel for the community, talk to the city council, find out what the issues are, how much they want pay the person and what the ideal candidate looks like,” said Baenziger, owner of Colin Baenziger & Associates Executive Recruiting.

“And tonight we’re going to talk to the public, to see what they think would be a great city manager.”

He said he has about 90 days to find the candidate.


The Fairborn City Council has continued its process towards hiring a city manager and is now seeking feedback from residents.

The council announced two meetings for Tuesday and Wednesday for citizens and business owners to discuss concerns with council and the newly-appointed recruiting firm.

Citizens are invited to attend the meeting tonight in the Fairborn Government Center fire training room, 44 W. Hebble Ave., from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Wednesday morning meeting, from 7:30 to 8:30, is for business and organizational leaders in the community to provide input.

Florida-based Colin Baenziger & Associates Executive Recruiting was hired in November to assist with the hiring of the next city manager, according to city officials.

As a part of the hiring process, CB&A will meet with council and stakeholders to obtain information needed in the recruiting process.

“We want the citizens of Fairborn to feel like they have a voice and want to hear their desires and concerns,” said Mayor Dan Kirkpatrick.
