Mayor Says Economic Development Is Top Priority

Fairbury Mayor Homer Ward is pretty blunt when he says what the city is looking for in a new City Administrator. "Strength in economic development is going to be our top priority. I have communicated this to the city council and they are in unanimous agreement," he said.
 Ward told the Journal-news that coming off the heels of this week's city council meeting, local leaders were beginning to put criteria together as they search for a replacement for long-time city manager Joe parker. Parker's contract was not renewed in may and the municipality has been without an administrator since that time.
 Two weeks ago council members voted to officially seek a replacement for Parker. Up until that time it had not been definitively stated a replacement would be sought after.
