Lindblom hired as city administrator

By Karen M. Jorgensen

Former Claremont Councilmember Marie Lindblom was officially hired as Claremont's city administrator at last week's council meeting.

She had been offered the position earlier but no details to her contract had been worked out. At last week's meeting Mayor David Luedtke asked the council to either vote to hire Lindblom and work out the details or rescind the previous offer.

Councilmember Nancy Schwanke made a motion to rescind the previous offer which was seconded by Councilmember Rick Butler.

During the ensuing discussion Schwanke said that since there is a new council in place she would like to give it more time to see how things go. She added that if a city administrator is hired she would prefer it to be a part-time position.

Butler was more forceful in his opposition to hiring Lindblom saying that she had been on the council for two years and if she wanted to make changes in the city she had that time to do so. He also raised concerns about the salary which would be close to $50,000 including benefits.

The motion to rescind failed by a 3-2 vote with Schwanke and Butler voting in favor of the withdrawal and Luedtke and council members Kiel Schleusner and Dennis Martin voting against.
