City Manager Search Long But Hopefully Worth The Wait

 Last week’s news that the City of Fairbury finally has a city manager candidate set in their sights was a most welcome revelation. The city is currently working out preliminary contract negotiations with Collin Bielser of Baldwin City, Kansas. Fairbury Mayor Homer Ward says he hopes now of a more final nature can be reveled to the public on May 5.
  Let’s hope so too.
 For nearly a year our community has been without what is probably the single most important position any municipality can have. Upon the non renewing for former city manager Joe Parker’s contract Fairbury leaders have been hesitant to test the waters and quickly fill the position. Quickly is not a term we would use for Fairbury’s action.
