An attorney representing the board announced after more than an hour in closed session that the directors had taken “no reportable action.”
The board terminated the contract of General Manager Janice McClintock during a special board meeting June 24, after more than four hours in closed session inside the district office at 230 S. Sterling Drive.
At that time, the board appointed the district’s director of finance, Gay Giles, as interim general manager. She has since indicated that she might be interested in a retirement incentive if it were offered to employees in management positions, which would limit her time working for the district.
The posted purpose of Tuesday’s meeting was to discuss the appointment of an interim general manager.
Board President Steven Gutierrez said that the directors wanted to discuss the process they will use to choose a new general manager.
According to a job posting on the district website — www.mountainhousecsd.org — the board is seeking an interim general manager for an estimated period of six months.
The posting states that the board of directors wants a “pragmatic leader with high-ethics and integrity who embraces open government and transparency” and has “outstanding listening and communications skills as well as excellent interpersonal skills — someone who can work in a diverse environment.”
According to the job posting, candidates must have a bachelor’s or higher degree and at least seven years of management experience working in city government or a community services district, including proven success with budgeting, contracts and organizational development.
The application deadline for the interim position is noon Monday. Interviews are slated for Tuesday, and the start date is July 14.
Gutierrez said the board hopes to fill the position as soon as possible.
“Absolutely, we want to get some stability in leadership,” he said.
The board is scheduled to meet again in closed session at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday to continue discussions about finding an interim and a permanent general manager.
