Brock may be part-time interim city administrator
Bill Brock

McMinnville officials are slated to appoint a part-time interim city administrator this Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m.

The selection process will be made by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen during its regular session. A majority vote will be required after nominations are made.

The face may end up being a familiar one because Mayor Ben Newman wants the position to go to Bill Bock. 

“I’ve talked with Bill about taking the position,” said Newman. “I think it will be good. I discussed with him that he could work two days per week minimum and be on call as needed. I think the board will support this.” 

Brock announced his retirement as interim city administrator in November, abruptly withdrawing his desire to seek the job permanently. His final day, unless he is offered and accepts the part-time role, will be Feb. 1. 

The city is accepting applications to fill the city administrator job. However, the deadline to apply is Jan. 31 which leaves no time for the selection process. Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) will be assisting the city with the selection process. As of Friday, more than 25 people are vying for the position.
