Stanfield city manager Blair Larsen announced he is leaving for a position in another city.
The Stanfield city council was planning a special meeting Tuesday night after deadline to approve a plan for recruitment of a new administrator and an advertisement for the position. The proposed schedule would see finalists interviewed on July 19.
A draft advertisement for the position included in the agenda packet lists the salary at $65,000 to $80,000 plus benefits to manage a staff of 21 employees and an annual budget of about $3.7 million. Stanfield has a population of 2,185.
Larsen has served as Stanfield’s city manager since May 2013. He has overseen growth in housing and new business, but also controversy over alleged misconduct in the police department and the odor coming from the 3D IdaPro dehydration plant.
He said Friday that he was not ready to announce his new job yet but should be soon.
