Longmont City Council Enters into Contract Negotiations with Harold Dominguez for the Job of City Manager
JANUARY 24, 2011 – After conducting an extensive nationwide search the Longmont City Council has offered the City Manager’s job to Harold Dominguez.
At its January 24 City Council Meeting, after a short executive session meeting, Longmont Council Members directed Slavin Management Consultants to begin negotiations with Dominguez. If negotiations are successful, Dominguez could start his new job at the end of March. Slavin Management was hired by the Council in July 2011 to recruit and coordinate the city manager selection process.
According to Colorado Open Meetings law, City Council cannot make hiring decisions in executive session. Council directed the consultant to negotiate with Dominguez and a contract is expected to be finalized and returned to the Council for official vote within 30 days.
“The City Council was impressed with all six candidates for the City Manager’s job,” Longmont Mayor Dennis Coombs said. “We feel like Harold Dominguez is the right person to help lead Longmont in the foreseeable future.”
Dominguez is currently the city manager for San Angelo, Texas. Read Dominguez’s employment history.
Last week, the six candidates spent two days talking with a variety of community groups, city employees and on Friday they interviewed directly with City Council members.
“It was a very intensive and productive process,” Chief Human Resources Officer Bobby King said. “All the candidates were impressed with the thorough nature of the job search and we believe all this work will pay off with the selection of a very qualified candidate.”
