Search process begins for new town manager

The search has begun by the Culpeper Town Council to find a replacement for Kimberly Alexander, terminated by the town in February after about 17 months on the job.

When the council holds its regular March meeting Tuesday it will have before it a document titled “Proposed Process to Appoint a New Town Manager for Culpeper, Virginia.” It's a revised version of the process the council used in its search that resulted in the hiring of Alexander from among more than 50 applicants.

The process stretches over a four-month period with a July 1 date proposed for officially naming a new town manager and an Aug. 1 date for that person to begin work in Culpeper.

At its Tuesday meeting the council may discuss, modify or otherwise deal with the document. Chris Hively is acting as town manager until a new one is selected.

The council will consider several other upcoming departmental openings due to retirement or resignation.

The council is in the midst of budget season and may discuss monetary issues including a $30,000 special grant made to the Museum of Culpeper History at the February council meeting and a proposal to include the museum in the FY 14 budget. The new fiscal year begins July 1, but a budget needs to be approved in June.

Davenport and Co., advisers to the town on financial matters, has prepared financial policy guidelines dated March 5 to be considered and possibly adopted by the town. The guidelines present a snapshot of the town's present fiscal condition and make recommendations on various financial issues going forward.

A “Parking Supply Analysis” dated Feb. 26 is also available for the council to review. It includes statistics and recommendations for town action on downtown parking.

The council is expected to discuss “parking needs and concerns for police department, sheriff's office and commonwealth attorney's office in the former police department parking lot” on Cameron Street, according to a town document.

The above items are only tentative topics of discussion for the Town Council as agendas are not finalized until the Monday before meetings. Final agendas are available at the meetings and online at: culpeperva.gov.

Council meetings begin at 7 p.m. in the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors meeting room, 306 N. Main St.
