Public Invited to Meet Burien City Manager Finalists

Burien residents are invited to attend a reception where they can meet and talk to finalists for the City of Burien City Manager position. The event will take place on Friday, Feb. 28, 5:30 – 7:30 pm in the lobby at the Burien Community Center, 14900 6th Ave. SW. Participants will be asked to submit their comments about the job candidates for review by the City Council. The Council will meet in executive session on March 1 to conduct interviews of the finalists. Councilmembers hope to make a final selection at their meeting March 3. The selection will be made public after a contract is negotiated.

The City received 46 applications from around the country for the position, which became vacant in July 2013 when former City Manager Mike Martin left to accept a position in Lynden, WA. City Attorney Craig Knutson is serving as Interim City Manager.
